Stella Trattoria Traverse City MI

Years ago, I had received a gift certificate for this restaurant, but had never used it. I rarely find myself in TC proper, but here I was for the weekend. The restaurant is housed in a part of TC I didn't know existed, the Traverse Commons, a former Victorian era mental hospital. It was a bit off putting to me to be seated in what was once someones cell. The place prides itself on its farm to table...but it seems the only local meat they serve its offal. I opted for the decidedly non local seafood pasta. It was tasty. All in all, it was good but expensive, not sure I'll back because I am not sure I felt right enjoying a meal in a place where there was probably so much misery.
