We had a weekday lunch at Barca to celebrate a birthday. Stylish surrounds, attentive service and OK value for the quality that you receive, especially if you take advantage of the "lunch special" (main course for $25, including a glass of wine or a coffee - available 7 days). I had the black gnocchi, and enjoyed it.
Unfortunately, we didn't check our allergy issue, on the assumption that we'd be OK at a place like this. But ... not so! Just shows, if you have an issue, you always have to check.
