Living in Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties and the surrounding Northern Michigan area, we're lucky to be surrounded by fabulous restaurants, chefs, local wines, homemade pastries, cheeses, etc. (the list could go on and on!). What if you could combine all of those things into one restaurant and transfer everything that restaurant has to offer to your wedding meal? You can!
Since opening their doors in the basement of the building previously know as the Traverse City State Hospital, Stella (as we locals refer to it) has been serving up fabulous dishes day after day. Chef Myles Anton- a 2010 Michigan James Beard Award Nominee- creates a menu that is constantly changing from day to day with a focus on locally sourced ingredients, fresh produce, and homemade bread, cheese and pasta. The hustle and bustle of the restaurant business only allows Trattoria Stella to accept a limited number of off-site catering events each year. However, I can speak for the lucky ones in saying that if you book Trattoria Stella as your wedding caterer, you won't be disappointed. Check out Trattoria Stella under the "Caterer" section of the Vendor Guide.
