Barrio Eatery & Bar are kicking off their new monthly event, Slinging Plates by inviting local restaurateurs, chefs and sommeliers to create affordable dishes at fixed price points for the local community to enjoy.
‘Slinging Plates is all about people hanging out at the bar and having new conversations… We want to create a new kind of evening that engages locals, chefs and winemakers, and becomes a discussion point’, says Barrio Head Chef Francisco Smoje.
On the last Tuesday of every month, the menu is designed by a different culinary artist, allowing them the opportunity to work with local producers, and the freedom to create something different from what they’re usually known for.
The first event is Tuesday 26 March with Sicilian-born chef Roberto Costanzo, from Nomadic Kitchen, paired with Addley Clarke Wine. Roberto is renowned for his rustic Italian cooking using seasonal produce from his Byron Bay family farm.
And if that’s not enough to lure you out of the house on a Tuesday night, perhaps the prices will: $10 / $20 plates (meat & vegan friendly options) and $10 glass of wine. A la carte menu also available. Could Tuesday be the new Friday?
Barrio Eatery & Bar. Tuesday 26 March 6-9pm. No booking necessary. www.barriobyronbay.com.au
