Positioned as the more relaxed counterpart to its sister concept, Barcelona Wine Bar & Restaurant, Bartaco draws diners with a beach-themed vibe and a unique ordering system where guests place their menus on raised platforms at their tables to signal they’re ready to order. The chain has been growing steadily throughout the East Coast, thanks to an investment by a global PE firm in 2015.
