I'd plan on a beam and/or post beneath your kitchen counter. With 40lbs/sq. ft., about all you'll really want on there is just people and chairs. Adding a counter system with a 2" concrete slab on it will make your deck more like a trampoline. Add that stone veneer and you likely won't like the results.
If you put some posts under it, then you can do whatever style kitchen you can want and ensure your deck feels sturdy under foot during your most hopping of parties.
Life's too short...so enjoy it!
