Side Dishes: Santos Cucina says goodbye; Stebu and Magnolia return

Stowe’s Santos Cocina Latina held its last supper on Saturday night, ending a nearly two-year run in the village. The final specials board included paella, a shrimp ceviche in a mango citrus marinade, and pan-roasted snapper in a criollo sauce served with a signature root-vegetable tamale. Chef Miguel Garcia Lopez’s Latin American fare was some of the most innovative food in Stowe, and we’ll miss it dearly.

Lovers of Waterbury’s Stebu Sushi have been bummed that the tiny sushi shop has been closed all summer. But their patience will soon be rewarded, possibly by the end of the month: The eatery is joining forces with next-door neighbor Blackback Pub & Fly Shop to offer a full-on sushi and beer experience.

Stebu chef Stephen Shaefer is nearing the end of kitchen renovations that will enable him to offer his hand rolls as part of Blackback’s pub menu. Wednesdays through Fridays, Blackback patrons will be able to get made-to-order rolls with their microbrews; on Tuesdays and Saturdays, they’ll choose from a more limited selection of premade sushi. Shaefer hopes to reopen on August 30.

Meanwhile, Blackback is expanding into the Stebu space and will add 14 more taps, as well as putting flatbread pizzas and calzones on its menu.

Upgrades are also on the menu at Burlington’s Magnolia Bistro: The eatery closed recently for some minor fixes and refreshening, but reopens this week.
