In the Kitchen: Picada Espanola

(WTNH)– Owner Kay Ghura and Chef Dave Lopez from the Village Bistro show us how to cook with passion and make Picada Espanola.

They discuss where their food comes from and the variety of origin. They also use olive oil when cooking most of the meals and fresh produce.

Argentina-born Khaled Ghura opened The Village Bistro last September of 2013. The owner describes the restaurant as a “European getaway” that has a very rustic look to the restaurant, highlighted by wooden decor throughout. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner, and are known mainly for their tapas, paninis, and martinis.  The menu is French, Spanish, Italian and Mediterranean.

The bistro also offers live entertainment on weekends including flamingo dancers and music. On August 8th, there will be a Belly dance on Fire. For more information, go to
