Ella’s American Bistro opened in Devon Square shopping center (the one with ACME) in December 2011.
Details are just starting to emerge about this restaurant. It is owned by the Devon Hill BMW Family, who also runs two boutiques – Devon Hill Boutique (at Devon Hill BMW) and Blue Horse Boutique in Wayne.
Executive chef is Matt Schuler, who was most recently the chef/instructor for Bryn Mawr’s Viking Range Culinary Arts Center. Schuler’s menu will feature casual bistro fare ($10-30) with a commitment to farm-to-table ideals such as locally-sourced, organically-grown, seasonal ingredients. According to Philly.com, the menu will feature items such as a grilled New York strip, heirloom bean chili, grilled pizza, Iron Stone Farms sirloin burger, linguine, buttermilk fried chicken, BBQ Berkshire pork chop, crispy skin red snapper, and lobster mac & cheese. Lunch and brunch will also be served.
A full bar will also be included — in keeping with the sustainable theme, it is made out of an organically milled sycamore tree.
At a recent event at Blue Horse Boutique, a few dishes that will be available at Ella’s were served, including: Southern Pecan Chicken Salad Tea Sandwiches, Artichoke Bruschetta, Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies & Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.
