Bartaco — the Mexican restaurant with a beach vibe — opens soon in the old Peter Coppola Salon, next to Save the Children.
It’s a couple of miles from Compo, but no problema.
The first Bartaco in Port Chester is smack on the water. The 2nd — in downtown Stamford — isn’t. And the one in West Hartford definitely is not.
Owner Sasa Mahr-Batuz — of Barcelona fame — knows a bit about the beach. He grew up in Westport, graduated from Staples, and will make sure his newest Bartaco has not just a beach flair, but his beach.
He and his staff are on the lookout for Westport beach photos. Specifically, shots from the 1960s and ’70s — people, landscapes, landmarks, that sort of thing.
The photos will be used throughout the restaurant. Send yours to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Oh, yeah: Sasa’s willing to pay for the photos.
Dollars, not pesos.
Though maybe you can wangle a free margarita or two.
