Intimacy Be Damned, Cafe Stella Hopes to Expand

Silver Lake’s romantic French bistro Cafe Stella is expanding at Sunset Junction. Eastsider L.A. reports that the restaurant’s owner, Grant Kanter, is seeking to double the seating capacity by taking over neighboring vintage store Driftwood, a move that could bring its 50-seat restaurant into the 99 club, though possibly at the expense of the room’s intimate feel. Kanter is also hoping to convert his beer and wine license into a full liquor license to get on that still-chugging mixology train. [The Eastsider]
