Ela Goes Late With A New Bar Menu And More

It’s summer hours at Ela with a new happy hour schedule, a new menu, new drinks and a new beer list. The big draw? Jason Cichonski‘s modern American outpost will be serving its new late night bar menu until midnight on weekdays and 1am on the weekends, with a Thursday and Friday late-night happy hour that will also run from 10pm until midnight.

So what will the kitchen be serving up after the sun goes down? How ’bout plates of tater tots loaded down with short rib and chorizo? Or jerk chicken sandwiches and steamed buns with duck and pickled fennel?

You can check out the full late night menu (which went into effect just a couple of days ago) after the jump. And we’ve also got a list of some of the bar’s new cocktails which, in keeping with the house style of unique and challenging concoctions, is truly something to behold.
