Ella's Restaurant

Concept

Neo-Classical American Cuisine in a Food-Cart Kind of World

An elaborated "food-cart trailer" aesthetic, which incorporates more than a nod to the vintage American trailers frequently converted into food carts, creates the focal point for Ella's redesign concept.  Corrugated aluminum siding, rough-hewn wooden beams and planks, strategic awnings, integration with the adjacent outdoor walkway, colorful hand-made detail, subtle vintage influence, and otherwise utilitarian finishes will characterize this aesthetic. The "food-cart" concept will create a space, both, functionally and aesthetically pleasing that pays homage to classic Americana - and the roots of Ella's cuisine - while updating the space within a modern, social orientation which places community and sustainability at the fore.
