Go Wild with 5 Courses, Wine + Beer @ Bar Sugo’s Game Dinner – SoNo, CT

11 Oct

 

If you’re going to have game meat, you really only have two options to get it done right as far as we can see:

1)  Head to Grandpa or Grandma’s kitchen.

2)  Head straight to a restaurant that has a chef that you trust.

Unfortunately, when you’re headed out to a restaurant, it’s hard to know who the trusted chefs are until you’ve tried their game dishes.  For the timid and those afraid to try more exotic meats, this could be a deal breaker.  The meat might be too dry, it might not be cooked the right way, or the flavors might be off-balanced, leading to an unpleasant taste.

Lucky for you we know that Chefs Pat Pascarella and Paul Failla at Bar Sugo have the art of wild meat down, er, pat.  ;)  And, to show off these skills, they’ve created a five course wild game dinner that will be hosted on 10/22, staring at 6:30.  It’s $60 per person and that includes wine and beer to go with each course, plus it includes the tax and tip!  For a dinner like this, that’s a pretty nice cost, especially if you want to venture off into the dark side of the culinary world.  Yes, maybe you can delve deeper than just chicken, pork, and beef?

Paul Failla Takes Over Kitchen of Bar Sugo; Pat Pascarella Oversees and Looks to Expand

When people ask us where some of our favorite restaurants are or ask where we’d go for a nice outdoor spot in the Norwalk area, an answer that always come up is Bar Sugo. Although it took us a while to get there, we enjoyed a feast from Chef Pat Pascarella back in March and we’ve been back two more times since. Two times ago we took Kristien’s parents and they said that Bar Sugo was one of the best restaurants that she’s ever been to. And, we even took our friends there this past weekend and enjoyed another amazing meal.

20130819-073230.jpgSo, it’s kind of selfish to just keep Pat in one place. Even when we talked last year, he had plans to expand and to try new things. And, that’s exactly what’s happening! The first part of the plan involves a brand new chef at Bar Sugo, Paul Failla, that will head the kitchen. But, Chef Failla isn’t what you’d call a new chef. He’s spent time at two of the most popular and highest quality restaurants here in Fairfield County: Nola and The Whelk. Chef Pascarella will still be there for a big portion of the week, though, overseeing the kitchen and the menu.

With more time freed up, Pat will be looking for that perfect location for another restaurant either in NYC or Brooklyn. We’re very happy for Pat as he continues to cook up his own culinary empire.

Buona fortuna, Chef Pascarella and Chef Failla!
