Easily one of the nicest restaurants in town, Stella has an ever-changing menu of delicious dishes. This classic eatery was built in the basement of the recently renovated State Hospital, an iconic institution of Traverse City. Say hi to our awesome roommate Jessica if you get a glance of the kitchen! :-)

Olives and Wine is the hippest new spot in town. The owners Chien and Ari are fantastic hosts, and they make all of their guests feel like their best friends. Also, the private room in the back is an old bank vault, and the working vault door is still intact!
