Hash at the Hotel Erwin has been replaced by a cozy, kicked-back, farmhouse-inspired restaurant and bar named Barlo Kitchen & Cocktails, which manages to keep the name-jousting intact with the hotel’s roof-top lounge, called High. Consistent with Venice’s “Locals Only” aesthetic, Barlo is dedicated to local ingredients, beer, and wine on breakfast, brunch, and dinner menus crafted by executive chef Jason Wiggin.

The Bar

Reclaimed wood sets the scene here, with a long communal table, planted herbs, and local artwork filling in the lines. Wiggins menu embraces both casual, beach-friendly snacks and fine-dining touches, with everything from bacon caramel corn and shrimp and grits to seared black cod and charcuterie (he’s added a similar selection of eats to High, with dishes like duck confit sliders and something called “sushi nachos”). Wiggin will also highlight a “producer of the month,” currently it’s Ontario’s Drake Family Farms. Ryan Wingo is on drinking duty here, mixing up cocktails that employ fruit preserves, tinctures, infusions, moonshine, and herbs in drinks like The Strawberry Mule and the ominous-sounding Disappear. Currently soft-open and grand-opening this Thursday, check out Barlo’s space and dinner, cocktail and beer, and breakfast menus below.
