GLORIOUS SUMMER DINING
It's that sound again, the sound we foodies are always craving: voices engaged in conversation and laughter along with the subtle clink of wine glasses toasting special occasions as waiters serve up the chef’s artfully prepared plates, all in a room filled with ambiance, just the right lighting and guests who know they’ve made the right choice as they gaze at the sun setting over Broad Creek. These are all scenes that can be found at ELA’s Blu Water Grille, located at Shelter Cove Harbour.
The story behind the restaurant’s name? Restaurateur Earl Nightingale explains: “The name ‘ELA’ is an acronym for the names of my children: Erin, Lauren and Alex, who are all actively involved in many aspects of our operation, and ‘Blu’ was the name of a restaurant where I worked as teenager in Chicago.” After more than 40 years in the hospitality and restaurant industries, Nightingale is paying homage to his first place of employment, which launched his career.
