Barrio Eatery & Bar follows the seasons and, with the weather warming up, spring is the perfect time for the team to change it up and put a new style of cooking into action. At this time of year, the ground stirs and begins sprouting its tender offerings, the promise of new life is everywhere and fresh, zingy young flavours are bountiful. 

A passionate master of open-fire cuisine, executive chef Santiago Socrate will take you on a grilling adventure to destinations around the world, serving up delicious, inspired, regional dishes.

The new spring menu pays homage to the best produce in the Northern Rivers, spanning everything from Rainbow Trout over coals with ajo blanco to Pork Steak with guindillas, capers and lemon. Barrio’s favourite BBQ spatchcock is served with a delicious lemon myrtle-infused butter and chicken jus; while their cannelloni comes stuffed with ricotta, rainbow chard, and pine nuts. Snack on preserved sardine skewers on toast, and jamon croquettes while you wait. Pair with a refreshing cocktail or cold beer to complete your meal.

It’s important when you are hosting events to find a venue that will suit everybody’s style, as well as being a bit classy and also fun. Whether you’re hosting the office party or bringing your friends or family together, Barrio Eatery & Bar has a wonderful range of grilled meats, but as any vegetarian knows, vegetables cooked in the open fire style also have that special flavour.

The stylish, modern, but relaxed décor at Barrio also helps make it an ideal venue for small intimate gatherings to larger events. Barrio’s friendly team is happy to offer bespoke menus and quotes for personally tailored packages to suit your desires.
