Barrio Eatery & Bar is now officially back open for dinner after the fire in December, and to celebrate, Francisco Smoje is hosting a one-off Francisco’s Table event on Saturday 22 February at 6.30pm. In true Francisco’s Table style, guests will eat together on communal tables and enjoy a special creative menu with shared plates.
The renowned Francisco’s Table first began in 2008 as a series of pop-up events, taking over spaces in an underground dining movement that was spreading across Sydney. In 2011, Francisco, his wife Emma, and their roaming restaurant moved to Byron Bay and quickly became an integral part of the food community. Francisco’s key philosophy is to know the provenance of food. He spends time getting to know the local growers, producers and farmers – many of whom are now his friends.
Francisco says that the Barrio crew ‘wanted to do a special event to celebrate that we are finally back open with our usual trading hours. It’s been a tough few months, but the community support has been amazing. I hope to see you all there for our neighbourhood gathering at Barrio’, he added.
Argentinian-born Smoje is famed for his authentic, vibrant and bold cooking that’s familiar and comforting; beautiful to look at, yet close to its original form.
Rejoice with Barrio Eatery & Bar as they re-open for nights, and enjoy the food, wine, culture and most importantly, the passion of the people.
From 22 February 2020, Barrio Eatery & Bar will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner six days a week (Mon–Sat 7am–9pm).
