The Garden at Ellera
The casual sibling of Ellera, which offers more-formal Italian fare inside, the Garden is an outdoor space inspired by the Boston Public Garden, a laid-back grouping of tables nestled beneath a grove of light-strung oak trees. Order this to go: Crispy potato croquettes stuffed with Parmesan and prosciutto are the epitome of hand-held comfort food, while a sizable salad of Little Gem lettuce with green and kalamata olives, goat cheese, and marinated tomatoes is a flavorful mix made even greater with a generous allotment of extra-crispy morsels of pork belly. Indulge with an order of banana zeppole, crunchy, airy pillows served with cinnamon cream. Pro tip: Orders are taken via phone rather than online and can be picked up at the outdoor patio.
