{new haven} restaurant week

April 12, 2017

Like many big cities (even though New Haven doesn’t really qualify as a big city), restaurant week happens twice a year! Once in the spring and once in the fall. I was lucky enough to get a reservation on a Friday night to a pretty popular restaurant in New Haven called Barcelona, which serves tapas style food. I have been wanting to try this place for a while now and really happy I went! For their restaurant week special, you can order 4 tapas + dessert for $34, which is a great deal! My friend and I ended up sharing these tapas – we got a cheese dish, potatoes, fried calamari, and spinach&chick pea dish. We even got a free chicken empanada tapa plate due to a mistake (we didn’t mind). Along with free bread, 5 tapas between the 2 of us was plenty of food and ended up being a not-so-pricey dinner! This restaurant does not usually offer dessert, but they served an olive oil cake as a restaurant week special – not the best, not the worst I have had. I would definitely come to Barcelona again!!

Fried calamari – so good!

Potatoes – they were tasty but don’t remember exactly what was in them.

Goat cheese – tasted great with the free bread!

Our free chicken empanadas!!

Forgot to take a pic of the spinach & chick pea tapas which was also great with the bread!
