Ellsworth, the casual counterpart to Verjus wine bar, has taken American and French feel-good food and elevated their dishes to fine dining standards, all whilst retaining a cosy and relaxed atmosphere.
Their menu is full of dishes evocative of what you may see at a country fair, or lovingly cooked by your grandma, but that’s its charm. They take the simple, yet delicious dishes we all know and love and refine them through careful sourcing and attention to detail. Their potato skins dish is the perfect example, topped with melted tomme and crunchy chicken skin instead of crumbled bacon it’s the perfect twist on an ordinary, yet tasty meal. The humble buckwheat waffle has also been given a facelift, topped with a slab of seared foie gras, and not forgetting their amazing Sunday lunch, which may just be the best in Paris.
Ellsworth chef, Hannah Kowalenko is committed to taking home-made dishes to the nth degree with creating a very vegetable-centric menu which she adapts to the seasons. Everything, from the bread, yogurt, ricotta and sausage have been made on site, at Ellsworth, and as they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating, and we recommend just that as they are genuinely delicious!
