Love = Action

persian-breakfast-2 copy.jpg

As we all adjust to the current “reality” in the country, we’ve been trying to stay connected and active without losing our bearings. At Bartavelle we are lucky in so many ways—we have a great crew of people who all love each other, and we have a bunch of wonderful humans to connect with every day—that’s right, YOU.
 
One way to move forward with love and intention is to give back when you can, which we are doing with a monthly action. For the month of February, we’re donating $1 to the ACLU for every Persian Breakfast sold, to help support their fight for justice for all.
 
Our Persian Breakfast is organic lebneh, creamy French feta, Persian cucumbers, fresh herbs, olive oil, house za’atar and house made fig jam. Served with warm pizza bianca from Acme Bread (OK, poetic license here, but it really works, trust us).
 
In addition, our sweet crew of baristas and cooks has gotten together and decided to do their own action: Cash tips on weekends in February will be donated to Centro Legal de la Raza. This past weekend people were very generous, and we all feel the love.

Za'atar and Marash Pepper For Home

za'atar-marash-pepper.jpg

We now have Marash pepper and our house blend za'atar available for you to take home!

Marash pepper, from Turkey, is one of our favorite things, adding magic pretty much wherever you want to use it. We love it on avocados and eggs, of course, but it's wonderful just about anywhere. $7 for a 3 oz. jar.

Our za'atar is made with dried thyme, sumac, roasted sesame seeds and Maldon salt. It's an important ingredient in our Persian breakfast, and you'll find lots of other uses. Salad dressings, yogurt, meat and fish. Tell us how you use it! $8 for a 4 oz. jar.

Find these on the shelves with the June Taylor Jams!

the box house new york (11).jpg

Come help us celebrate our 4th time 'round the sun! We will close early on Sunday, October 23rd and start making the pintxos and uncorking the wine starting at 4PM. Our dear friends Paco Prieto and Christopher Fisher are breaking out the giant paella pan and assembling a delicious feast.

$40 includes pintxos, paella and WINE! Also, there must be some dessert, so plan on that, too.

*please note, because we are making one pan of paella, we may not be able to accommodate food allergies/preferences. There will be both meat and seafood in the paella, (no shrimp, though!) If you cannot eat meat or seafood, please come see us another time!

Sake Class with Yoshihiro Sako

tokkuri.jpg

Let's go deeper into Sake!

There are still some misconceptions and stereotyped notions about Sake. Let's reveal the truth! We'll discuss the classifications of sake, how they're processed and their flavor profiles, and we'll taste one from each.

About Yoshihiro Sako: In 2008 Sako received his Kikisake (sake sommelier) license from the Sake Service Industry Institute & Kikisake Guild. Sako has worked as a kurabito (brewer) at Kubota brewery in Kanagawa pref. and Shiokawa brewery in Nigata prefecture in the past. Currently, Sako works as a sake director at Yuzuki Japanese eatery and continuously experiments with home-brewing to understand the intricacies of microorganisms.
