We popped into Barbacco last night for a quick pre-event snack and a glass of wine.  Here is what we sampled:

Selection of 3 Bruschette:

1. Cured sardine, radish, fennel, salsa verde,

2. Crushed cannellini beans, radicchio,

3. Duck liver paté, balsamic onion marmellata

Salad of celery root, apple, celery, gorgonzola, toasted walnuts

Selection of house made salumi

Everything at Barbacco was superb and I can’t wait to go back for more and also try Parbacco, the upscale sister restaurant next door.  Ordering wine is done via iPad and allows you to take your time reading all the info about the producers, perfect for the wine geek.

We were the first ones in the door at 5pm and the service was very friendly and attentive although they did forget to put in the order for the local squid stuffed with ‘nduja, spicy pan grattato, and rucola.  Oh well, I’ll have to go back and try that next time if it’s still on the menu.
