In the spirit of warm, soulful hospitality and fresh seasonal cuisine, Ella’s on 2nd is one of Nashville’s most approachable and cheerful gathering places. Named for hotel co-owner Michael Hayes’s grandmother, Ella’s is located in the SoBro district of downtown Nashville, just a short walk from all the best things MusicCity has to offer.
The menu boasts West Coast-Italian fare made with local ingredients and complements the feel of the light and airy dining room. An otherwise modern space is brought to life with pops of muted greens and tans, while a white oak communal chef’s counter is a focal point within the open-kitchen concept.
An elegant craft-cocktail lounge and heated outdoor patio offer seating areas in addition to the main dining room, which makes the space amenable to large private events, intimate dinner parties, or a romantic dinner for two.
