Stella Pop Up Dinner Series    |    Are you ready to join the party?

Stella is not a nightly dinner restaurant. We specialize in custom dining options for groups and families celebrating special events, however, several times per month, Stella offers to the dining public our Pop Up Dinner Series.  Designed and formatted like a spirited dinner party, a Stella Pop Up event is an exploration into creative cooking. Some of the best dining experiences are not always in traditional restaurants – they tend to be affairs where the entire menu is often a never to be repeated surprise.  Anyone can go to a popular restaurant, order straight off the (same) menu, and have a fantastic meal – but where is the fun in that? At a Stella Pop Up, guests are encouraged to walk around the kitchen, joining conversations that are free flowing, robust and even educational. We serve one tasting menu for each gathering.  We seat communally and each course is served at the same time with some commentary from the Stella Kitchen team. For the adventurous diner, a Stella Pop Up evening delivers an unforgettable meal and experience.
