May 13, 2010


Michigan native Myles Anton has earned a following for his farm-focused cuisine at Trattoria Stella, located in the lively gastro-hub of Traverse City, Michigan. He and his sommelier, Andrea Danielson, will present a spectacular dinner paired with excellent wines—many of which hail from Michigan wine country—at tonight's Beard House event. (Fun fact: Traverse City lies on the 45th parallel, the same circle of latitude that travels through Bordeaux and Burgundy.)
