I do not need an excuse to dine at Ella Dining Room and Bar, although it is tough to get a table, almost impossible, without an advance reservation. Same day is a royal PITA. But lunch is generally open, although I make reservations for lunch, too, just to get the points on Open Table, the points that I will never use and I know it. LOL. I just accumulate them.
Guess Ella is among my favorite places in Sacramento for dining. I find the food interesting, love the presentation, the wonderful service and the ambiance. OK, what I really love is the Ella Manhattan, made with bourbon, sweet vermouth and a real maraschino cherry, an amarena, not the cheap-ass tasteless things most people think of as a maraschino.
Next week, I am treating a client from East Sacramento to lunch at Ella. It's sort of a celebration but more of a "we emerged victorious" escrow for closing a home in East Sac. You can read more in my personal blog today about the terrible situation in Selling One of East Sacramento Homes for Sale 95819. I think we both can use an Ella Manhattan.
