With el Willy off to greener pastures on the Bund, chef/restaurateur Willy Trullas Moreno has opened elEfante at his flagship restaurant’s original Donghu location. The concept is a broader than its predecessor: Mediterranean with a focus on Spanish and Italian cuisine. With close to 100 different items, the menu is enormous. Highlights include a wide range of imported cheeses and charcuterie, shareable steak and seafood dishes, and a tapas list representing most of the region’s culinary touchstones. Another addition is a deli shop selling specialty Spanish food items, cured meats and artisan cheeses.
