about

Estela is a restaurant in downtown Manhattan from chef Ignacio Mattos. Set one floor above Houston Street, it is a bistro at heart, taking familiar ideas like tartare, ricotta dumplings, burrata on toast, fried rice, and steak, and presenting them in new, satisfying ways. The bar is open late, and you can come in for just a glass and a small bite, should you feel like it. Now in its 6th year, estela has earned numerous accolades, including a place on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants List, one Michelin Star, and two stars from both New York Magazine and the New York Times.

Ignacio Mattos, Owner and Chef
Ignacio Mattos is the chef-owner of New York restaurants estela, Café Altro Paradiso, and Flora Bar. Born in Uruguay, he has a bold, singular style inspired by the city he now calls home, time spent in Europe and South America, and the mentorship of chefs Alice Waters, Francis Mallmann, and Judy Rodgers. In 2017, Esquire named Ignacio America’s Chef of the Year. His first cookbook, Estela, was ranked one of 2018's best by the New York Times Book Review.
