Last night, Bowery Boogie happened by Ellabess, the new restaurant from the Dell'Anima crew in the forthcoming Nolitan hotel, and noticed that the place looks very close to opening. Staff was doing a dry run—either friends and family or simply staff—and a hostess reported that they'll open to the public on July 18. Former Dell'Anima chef Troy Unruh will run the kitchen, serving seasonal American fare.
This is just one of the new concepts Epicurean Management, the restaurant group that owns Dell'Anima, L'Artusi, and Anfora, is working on. They're also taking over the Bowery Wine Co. space and its adjacent storefronts for a new restaurant later this year.
