Wintering in Barcelona. Just tuck into a belly- and soul-warming dish at any of the four Barcelona Wine Bars 
in our area and be transported.By Wendy Logan. Photos: John Shyloski. Ah, Barcelona…Winter is the perfect time to immerse your senses and your palate in its warmth. We’re going no further than New Haven for the deep, hearty and harvest-y dishes of Spain at Barcelona Wine Bar, the 20-year standard-bearer for the culinary genre. If you’re ready to warm your chilly bones, Stamford, Norwalk, or Fairfield are also sure to hit the spot.  Inspired by the “mercado” and the dishes of peasants and farmers of the Spanish countryside and seaside, the menus at these landmark restaurants are based on what’s fresh, what’s seasonal, and what’s traditional. The ubiquitous brand is about Mediterranean-influenced Spanish food in all its flavorful simplicity, tinged with just the right amount of cooking finesse, and it’s about going the extra mile, says Drew McConnell, senior brand manager. “It’s the in-house butchering and curing, making everything from scratch.”  #barcelona #barcelonawinebar #bwb #Newhaven #fairfieldct #norwalkct #stamfordct #tapas #michaellucente #justincurneal #kalinecapps #jamesbizak #smallplates
