A Catalonian Spring Feast
Join us for an outdoor celebration of La Calçotada, Catalonia’s annual harvest of Spring onions – unearthed, grilled over open-flame, wrapped in newspaper to steam, served with romesco sauce, and crisp rosé.
We’re firing up a charcoal grill for the star of the show – NYC’s seasonal bounty of Spring onions – along with butifarra sausage, lamb skewers, and Ibérico pork presa. The feast is served with pots of romesco for dipping and free-flowing rosé wine.
Grab a bib, get messy, and celebrate Spring!

ROOTED IN HISTORY
A long, long time ago, in Lleida, a local farmer named “Xat de Benaiges” planted the sprouts of garden onions. He submerged them deep underground so that an extended portion of the stem remained white and edible. This agricultural process is known as Calçar in Catalan and is the root of the Calçotada celebration. Every spring, the harvest of calçots are unearthed, grilled over large open-flame barbecue pits, wrapped in newspaper to steam, and served on long outdoor tables with grilled meats, romesco, and rosé wine (in porróns of course!). We hope you join us for this time-honored tradition!
