Summary: A haven for foodies in NYC.

Estela stands out as a beacon of culinary excellence in the heart of the city. This cozy bistro-style restaurant serves up Mediterranean-influenced small plates that are as thoughtful as they are delectable. With a minimalist decor, the focus is squarely on the high-quality, innovative dishes that have made Estela a beloved fixture in the local dining scene. Whether it's the beef tartare with crisped sunchokes or the ricotta dumplings veiled by raw mushroom slices, each offering is a testament to the kitchen's creativity and attention to detail. The European wine list complements the fare perfectly, with a particularly strong selection of Burgundy wines and Rieslings. Estela is the perfect spot for an intimate dinner or a lively gathering with friends, where sharing is encouraged but savoring each bite for oneself is understood.
