One of the newer spots in Long Beach, Ellie’s is pretty special. It’s in a quiet neighborhood not too far from downtown, with a big front patio, a small dining room, and some very tasty Southern Italian food. The pastas are fantastic - especially the shrimp and ’nduja tagliatelle - but the best thing here is the grilled bread and pork butter. Pork butter is as good as it sounds, and is made better when it’s spread on grilled bread and topped with one of the pickled carrots that come on the side. Be warned though, parking in this area is near-impossible at night.
