For those of you who may not know, New Haven, CT is a foodie’s paradise. With world-renowned pizza places and an incredible array of ethnic restaurants, the options for a delicious meal are endless! That’s why we were THRILLED to learn that one of our favorite New Haven eateries Barcelona, an amazing wine and tapas restaurant, provides catering for special events and weddings all throughout Connecticut.
Warning–these food images may cause you to drool all over your smartphone or keyboard so proceed with caution!
I was invited by Barcelona New Haven’s event manager Helen to come in for a tasting of some old favorites as well as some new additions to the menu. I was super impressed to learn that they don’t actually have a separate catering menu–any of their dozens of tapas and entrees can be served at events both big and small. Some of my new favorites included the Smoked Trout Pate with pickled onions, the Shrimp Escabeche and the Potato Tortilla served with chive sour cream. Delicis!!

Depending on the size of your wedding, you can also choose to have your wedding at their locations as well if you have your heart set on a restaurant reception. In addition to weddings, they of course also cater any type of event, including corporate events, dinner parties, etc. We hope these photos didn’t leave you too hungry and if they did, you now know where you must have your next meal :)
