CTbites has some exciting breaking food news regarding the ever expanding Greenwich restaurant scene. The Spread in Sono has just told CTbites that they have signed the lease for the old Barcelona spot in Greenwich CT at 18 W Putnam Ave. They hope to be open in fall of 2017.
The Spread has been awarded many accolades for Chef Carlos Baez' inventive American menu with strong global influences. The Greenwich food lineup will look and feel much like that of The Spread in South Norwalk, and will adhere to The Spread’s philosophy of offering high quality, locally sourced ingredients. Expect to see classics such as Seared Foie Gras, Hamachi Crudo, Braised Octopus, Veal & Ricotta Meatballs and Beef Tongue Bruschetta alongside seasonally inspired specials.
Greenwich will share the vibrant atmosphere and that "just right for Saturday night vibe" we've come to know and love in Norwalk. This new location also has particular significance for The Spread team as co-owners Shawn Longyear and Andrey Cortes, tended bar in the days of Barcelona years ago. They are looking forward to returning to Greenwich.
We will keep you posted on the interior as they start their build out, but partner, Christopher Hickey, when asked about the semi-private space off the main dining room says "Diners can look forward to specially themed dinners every month." We will indeed look forward to these events and more come fall 2017.
Get excited Greenwich and stay tuned for more news on the The Spread's opening date and renovation details as they get closer to launch.
