Ellabess, the restaurant from the team behind Dell'Anima, L'Artusi, and Anfora within the new Nolitan Hotel, will close for business after service on Valentine's Day, and it will reopen sometime this spring as a new concept and entity. Until then, the space will be used intermittently for private events and the hotel will coordinate delivery from nearby restaurants for the hotel guest.
Reps didn't give a reason for the closure, just seven months after the restaurant debuted, but tepid early reviews and a not incredibly warm space (which they did try to tweak last month) probably didn't help things, especially in such a competitive neighborhood. Here's hoping things work out better the second time around.
