Food Fight!

My favorite new Stamford addition, Barcelona, is planning a Wine Dinner featuring tomatoes, in honor of the famous tomato festival/fight in the Spanish city of Valencia. They’re calling the dinner “La Tomatina,” and it’s scheduled for August 26th at 7pm.

The menu includes sunny summer ingredients like shrimp, green onion, local lettuce and (perhaps unsurprisingly) bushels of tomatoes. Each course is paired with a fitting Spanish wine. The flyer says “[t]here could be an impromptu tomato fight, come dressed accordingly!” This, I would like to see. For reservations call 203-348-4800 or email Gretchen@barcelonawinebar.com.
