Holiday dining is even more special when it's vegan, frankly. And when there are upscale places serving innovative and delicious food to cozy up in with your one and only love or your entire family, well that's hard to resist this time of year. Stella Resto is just a pop-up restaurant for now, but (rumour has it) the operation could stick around if it achieves enough success. Dino Luciano, the winner of Masterchef and menu creator merged with The 5700 (the company behind much of the Vegandale success) on this venture, so we shouldn't expect anything else. Despite its small menu, there are so many amazing flavours—including Alfredo! Go add to the demand.
