This is my favorite bakery in Richmond.  We go as often as possible.  

Kim, I had seen your posts about the bakery a few times. Didn’t know if you had seen the video.

Anyone been to Stella's?

Stella's is excellent.  We've been really lucky with various Mediterranean restaurants in Richmond, but Stella's is the old standard.  There's a place I grew up going to in Alexandria and when I went there on a trip a few years ago and mentioned that I'd moved to Richmond, the owner said, "I'm glad you still love us after going to Stella's - she's the best!".

As Kim said, “Stella’s is excellent”.  We sat at the bar & had a great time talking to the 2 bartenders (Morgan & Mike) about the upcoming NFL game (Dallas vs Brady’s Tampa).  Although they were split on rooting interest, I was hoping that both could lose.  Well, at least Brady wound up going down.

At any rate, everything we ate was well above the level we are used to in this price range and environment (really nicely done place).  Over many years in NYC, I’ve managed to find some upper end more expensive Greek places that are excellent &, yes, there are quite a few other places, especially in Astoria, that are well worth going to.  However, this was smack in the middle of those 2 categories and well appreciated.  Especially good was my “small plate” of smelts.  The portion was large enough to be a main dish if ordered with a side (all the apps. seemed to be sharable by 2-3 reasonably hungry folks).  The smelts were very cleanly fried.  I was a little surprised that the serving was not a bunch of the very small variety, but were a plate full of large fish. Very meaty, fresh and tasty.  We’ve found another place to love.

So happy that you enjoyed Stella's.  I love so how much of a neighborhood place it is.  When you are there, you can tell that the servers and bar staff know a lot of the folks.  I can honestly say we'd definitely be regulars if we lived nearby.  Glad to know that the smelts are good.  I invariably get the octopus or the saganaki, but I'll try them the next time.  So funny what you say about the football game.  We were feeling the exact same sentiments that day.  Being a lifelong Washington fan, I could hardly root for the Cowboys, but it was fun seeing Brady the Brat lose!
