As reported on Grubstreet
and elsewhere, the Park Slope Mexican restaurant Barrio will reopen Monday as Barrio Plates, with a whole new look (goodbye, pink paint job; hello, blown glass and antiqued mirrors). The new menu, created with the help of chef Martell Fonville (al di là) will be Latin-tinged “Nouveau American” (e.g. calamari in Dominican-style honey glaze).
Consensus of Barrio reviews is pretty much, great food but pricey, and Yelp’s got it hovering right around 3 stars.
Wonder how Barrio Plates will stack up on a deliciousness-to-price ratio. Tacking on “Plates” seems to imply that it won’t be cheap. Some of the small plates include:
- Almond stuffed dates wrapped in bacon with blue cheese dipping sauces ($9)
- Squash soup with fried sage, shaved parmesan & nutmeg ($7)
- Bacon wrapped snapper with frisee salad ($16)
- “Ultimate sliders” of flank, brisket, short ribs smothered in smoked bacon marmalade ($13)
Oh, and they’re hiring.
