Located in the former Alamitos Beach space occupied for many years by At Last Café, Ellie's has enjoyed rave reviews since its opening. The Southern Italian-inspired menu belongs to the talented Chef-Owner Jason Witzl, whose vision was to open a neighborhood restaurant where locals could gather. The menu features an assortment of ingredients grown and harvested by local farmers with seafood caught by local fisherman along with skilled butchers providing premium meats. Guests are greeted with a warm familial feeling, often by Chef Witzl himself as he makes his way from the kitchen to each table saying his hellos and sharing his enthusiasm for all things food and wine. Ellie's serves brunch, lunch and dinner.
Husband and wife team, Ray and Lynn Lasher, are at the helm of this popular dining destination in Belmont Shore. Featuring a menu of classic dishes with contemporary twists, as well as some favorite signature items from the original Lasher's (including the famed meatloaf, fried green tomatoes and creamy clam chowder), Lasher's Kitchen is open Tuesday-Sunday for dinner and offers brunch on the weekends. The thoughtful wine and beer list, coupled with Lynn and Ray's hospitality, have made this a go-to place for locals and visitors alike.
