Lunch at Ella with Paloma and Jeni

It was a busy week last week! On Friday, I had lunch with Paloma of La Dolce Vita who was in Sacramento to visit blogger friend Jeni from Mrs. Plain Jane. Jeni and I had met through the blogging connection a little while ago, and when she said that Paloma was coming into town, it was only fitting that we all get together! Thanks Jeni for arranging this get together!

It was wonderful meeting Paloma! She is just as sweet in person as she is on her blog, and both ladies are stunning, don't you think? Um...I was feeling a tiny bit "OTH", but they are both so fun, I put it out of my mind. I always love to meet bloggers in person. It adds a whole other dimension to the blog connection.

The food at Ella Dining Room and Bar is brilliant, as is the interior which I blogged about awhile back HERE.

I thought I'd give you another little peek.

We sat at this table right here. When we first came in it was full, but we ended up closing the place down by the time we got up to leave. Time flies......

Thank you to Jeni for bringing us all together!

I love Ella! When in Sacramento last year at this time I visited for lunch and had the best salad. I will be up in the north bay area again next week. Any suggestions? I think Paloma is a doll one of the first blogger's I reached out to, and was happy to hear back from with some great inspiration.
Thanks for the share.

Katie, it was so wonderful to meet you! You are so lovely and it was so fun to chat with you. I had a good picture of the two of us that I should send to you. Ella's was gorgeous!

I saw some of these pictures from Paloma's posts and I think that the reclaimed shutter ceiling is so cool! What a great idea!

Wow, I come here for a light lift, and my senses are attacked from all directions with great beauteousness (I just made that up-I think!) Such wonderful images and beautiful things. The Ella design is stunning. Re Le Jardin, will shabby chic every go out of style? I don't think so.

Hi Gina! So glad you found katiedid! Boy....we have alot of great restaurants in Sactown. You could try Mulvaney's Savings and Loan for fantastic food and, in my opinion a great atmosphere....more rustic, but with linen table cloths. Outdoor dining too. Waterboy has A+ food, ambience could be better though. Mason's....A+ food, great interiors and a very "happening" night life. Cosmopolitan Cafe, great food and GREAT interiors!!!!! (Hehehe...if I do say so myself.)
