The popular Port Chester taco joint owned by the Barcelona Group, has recently unleashed a brunch menu for Saturdays and Sundays that is a fitting extension of the brand’s signature breezy Mexican beach food. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this scene, think Mexican street food influenced by the tides (and an enviable location on the Byram River) with a backdrop fit for a Hampton's weekend of beach-going and people watching minus the traffic on the LIE.
But that would be no fun because you wouldn’t get to experience the Griddled Egg with Corn and Chorizo, a deconstructed south-of-the-border take on a morning breakfast sandwich. Order this and pair this with a Michelada and guard it with your life. Although I encourage sharing, this dish may test your generosity.
If you’re not feeling the savory dishes, the Mexican French Toast is a sweet must. The toast is fluffy with lightly crisped edges, and a subtly spiced syrupy finish. That syrup, like many of their sauces throughout the regular menu, is a nicely balanced construction of flavors that I begged to know the ingredients, which are: agave wine, sugar cane, orange peel, cinnamon and anise seeds.
Bartaco is open from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. daily, and food is served continuously. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bartaco is located at Willett Avenue in Port Chester, NY. A second location will be opening in Stamford at 222 Summer Street this year.
