First Look: Barbaro's soft opening


Residents of Monte Vista and Olmos Park (and anyone who keeps up with Industry News, obvi) were savvy to Barbaro impending opening. The neighborhood pizza place, formerly known as The Foundry, quietly opened it's doors Monday and already seems like an industry favorite.

Chad Carey, co-owner of Barbaro and The Monterey, says they're hoping to slowly gain traction over the course of the week and really hit the ground running on Friday. So, give it a few days folks. You can't rush a good thing.
