Kanella Stephen Starr Pop Up

Did anyone go for opening night last night? I have reservations for tomorrow and am eager to hear any reviews!

  1. I went. The food was fantastic--more subtle and less robust than Kanella but most of the dishes were great, including the desserts. The cocktails were awesome, too. But be warned--the small plate portions are tiny. Like 4 small slices of eggplant for the eggplant dish (which was maybe the best thing we had). We didn't have any large plates so I can't comment on that. You will spend a lot more than you would at Kanella.

    Recommended small plates are the dips, the grilled eggplant, and the nettles. For dessert, the figs and the lavender mousse.

      Thanks for the report! Good to know about the portions on the small plates, too.
