Bistro Barbès, the Park Hill restaurant owned by chef Jon Robbins is gearing up for a busy March. In addition to two special dinner events, the 28 seat French restaurant with North African influences is gearing up for a space facelift.
Renovations and changes to the interior will include the addition of a cold weather vestibule; new hostess station; new custom server station; a bar redesign; new bar top installation with patine copper; expanding the bar top to give guests a comfortable standing area to have a drink while they wait; a banquette for comfort and storage; and new chairs and tables. None of this though will disturb regular business hours.
During those dining hours will include a collaboration dinner with Joy Wine and Spirits: Passport to Europe on Wednesday, March 8 and the third annual wine dinner featuring Kivelstadt Cellars on Wednesday, March 15. For the former, Bistro Barbès has chosen five different wines from all over Europe to pair with a special five-course tasting menu created specifically for this event by the chefs at Bistro Barbès. Dinner will start at 6 pm; tickets are $75 per person. The latter starts at the same time and brings six courses and for $80 per person and brings in special guest Alex Pomerantz, the winemaker and general manager of Kivelstadt. He will guide guests through five Kivelstadt wines highlighted by a special menu from the chefs.
