Chef Dan Kardos of Bartaco Westport Teams up w/ Shearwater Coffee This Sunday

19 Dec

Sunday is all about coffee, chilling, and good food, so why not do all three at Bartaco in Westport? From 1-3 on 12/21, they’ll have a few treats for you. First up is Ed Freedman of Shearwater Coffee Roasters in Trumbull. He’ll be hanging out, so feel free to ask him all about the roasting process and what goes into the making of a good coffee. While you’re there, you’ll definitely want to check out what Executive Chef Dan Kardos (formerly of The Whelk, NOLA, Local Kitchen) is cooking up! That’s cuz he’ll be making up a special treat made with some Shearwater coffee.

And, since we’ve got you here, you can also check out Bartaco/Barcelona’s online shop for all kind of goodies! Act fast if you want delivery for Christmas: you’ll have to order today. Some items available are t-shirts, caps, glassware, olive oil, paella and sangria kits, their popular hot sauces, and the Barcelona cookbook. 

Barcelona hosts Memorial Day BBQ and pig roasts all summer long

15 May

Memorial Day and BBQs…they are inseparable like peanut butter and jelly, Batman and Robin, Lewis and Clark, Ren & Stimpy, bread and butter, and even pasta and sauce.  Perhaps they go so well together because BBQ’n brings family and friends together outside for good times, good fun, and good eats?  In essence, the grill unites people and connects us through our basic needs of friendship and food.

But, what do you do if you don’t have a grill or just want to go out and celebrate?  Easy…you head over to Barcelona Wine Bar & Restaurant in Fairfield on 5/27 from 1-9 pm.  For just $20 or $10 for kids (that’s a nice deal, btw) you’ll get a BBQ buffet that consists of sliders, kebabs, ribs, grilled veggies, salads, and their famous suckling pig.  For the beer lover, they’ll also have tastings from one of our favorite local breweries, Captain Lawrence.  They’ll have face painting for the kids (or that cool hipster) from 1:30-4:30, they’ll have outdoor games (cornhole please!), and they will even have a lemonade/popsicle/ice cream stand.  And, what’s a BBQ without live music?  Barcelona will have Rick Reyes & The Pasonfino Social Club playing from 2-6 while you chat, chew, and chill.
