First Look at Anella, Now Open in Greenpoint



    First Look at Anella, Now Open in Greenpoint
    Looks a wee bit rustic.

    Anella now occupies the space that was vacated by Queen’s Hideaway last fall. Per this week’s Openings: “If chef Michael Sullivan’s menu is less brazenly quirky than his predecessor’s, it’s no less appealing.
