Bloomfield’s restaurant scene just became more delicious with the addition of Bar Cara, which opens tomorrow, Saturday, January 23. Occupying the former Toscana on Broad Street, Bar Cara is an ambitious enterprise of the talented De Persio family, who for years, they’ve been pleasing palates in Montclair at their upscale Italian restaurant, Fascino. The name Bar Cara is an anagram of their names – Cynthia, Anthony, Ryan, Anthony.
“We’ll be serving traditional Italian food, like my grandmother makes, with a few twists,” says chef-owner Ryan De Persio. The entire place has a new contemporary look, “casual, with a New York vibe.”
Bar Cara, 1099 Broad Street, Bloomfield, NJ 973-893-3681.
