With the reopening of the 101 freeway and Coast Village Road, Stella Mare’s Bistro at 50 Los Patos Way is one of many restaurants in the Montecito area to try to make a comeback after the devastating floods and debris flows. I spoke with Danny Casillas, manager at sister restaurant Cafe Stella who told me that owner Philippe Rousseau hopes to be back in business Thursday, January 25th. “Thank you everyone who have reached out to us and thank you for your support, ” said Rousseau. “Stella Mare’s and our staff are all safe and the restaurant suffered very little damage, but there is so much destruction and personal tragedy around us in our community. Many thanks to the first responders, volunteers and anyone working so hard since this tragedy occurred. Thank you for their tireless efforts. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all our friends and neighbors! Our staff is anxious to get back to work and we are looking forward to see all your familiar faces!”
