"Anella opened in 2009 to acclaim for its warm interior and concise, seasonal menu. The Guatemalan-born chef, Mayo Orozco, has been there from the beginning and rose through the ranks. But even as Greenpoint has burgeoned with even more restaurants and foot traffic, Anella has kept the pace."
"The restaurant proper is composed of two narrow rooms flanking a massive bar that was originally a work table from the Steinway piano factory; an old sound board serves as wall art as well. A tin ceiling, wide plank floors, exposed brick and distressed walls complete the inviting décor. There’s a typical Brooklyn backyard with more seating and an herb garden."
