One of Wisconsin’s most recognizable restaurants will close its doors after 55 years in business. Ella’s Deli in Madison got attention for its outdoor children’s carousel. Ella’s opened for business in 1963 and moved to its current location on East Washington in 1976. The ice cream parlor and restaurant will shut down January 21st. There is hope it can return in some form under new ownership. It was listed for sale last May. No specific reason was given for the decision to close.
