Bar Mingo consistently promotes Italian food. Hot dogs in Rome?? No hot dogs here. Monday is 40% off bottle of wine. Join us.
Goulash, paella and hot dogs met with consternation by city councillor who says project to promote diversity is an assault on Italian eating habits

Hello Mingonians
 
Welcome to Jesus and Emily's Italian adventure.
Welcome to Sicily and welcome to Jesus's articulate musings.
 
Sicily
 
Low and away, down and out. Don't worry, we didn't forget about you Sicily. Sometimes as a cook, hidden away in the back of the house it's easy to get R.D.M. (Rodney Dangerfield Syndrom) "I don't get no respect 'round here." But when no one notices what you're doing, you can get away with alot more! You look at the food of Sicily and you see something unexpected for the land of Italia, dishes perfumed with cinnamon, saffron, cloves and other bold Arabic, Spanish and Greek flavors, all claimed from a rich history with an abundance of invasions . It's an outside of the fold style of cooking, the kind of food that speaks to me and whispers sweet nothings into my eardrums... food just the way I like it! No spotlight, no problem...An island never cries, and oh lordy, you better not as a cook!
 
Featured Sicilian Ingredients:
*Saffron. The much prized spice
*Bread Crumbs. Bread crumbs is sacred. The joke amongst the people and what used to be said was that if one was to drop even a single bread crumb, you would spend 100 years in purgatory sweeping up crumbs with ones own eye lashes!!!
*Caccio
*Swordfish and Calamari. Due to greek influence .
 
Antipasa:
Fried Caccio de roma w/ sweet vinegar salsa
 
Pesce:
Sword fish & Calamari with pureed saffron potatoes and anchovy almond sauce

See you Tuesday,
Jesus and Emily

Tuesday Night Wine Pairings
We are starting up again with a little twist! Jesus and Emily will be taking over for a while to further their knowledge.
Emily chose to start their adventure with Veneto, home of Prosecco! Jesus will be serving up a frito misto to pair with the delicious bubbles. Then moving on to braised pork cheeks paired with Allegrini's Ripasso.
Hope to see you,
Jesus and Emily

Hello Mingonians
The staff at Bar Mingo would like to extend a HUGE thank you to everyone that participated in and donated to the event held to benefit Gino last month. Thanks to all, it was a huge success and of course, a ton of fun. Everyone came together in order to help out an amazing family in need, and we were able to give Gino's family much more than our goal, thanks to the generosity of our Mingo community.  We could not have done it without you all, our fearless (and generous) leader, Michael Cronan, and all the businesses that donated awesome items for the silent auction. Stay tuned for another event just for you all!! This one will be a wine tasting with small plates, $20 a person, or free if you buy 6 or more bottles of wine.  Details and date to be announced.  Gino will be back on Thursday, if you have been jonesin' for a Gino fix- come on in!!  Thanks again- you guys rock, best guests ever!!
Sincerely,
THE STAFF
The people and businesses listed below gave us donations for the auction, feel good about supporting them!!

Welcome to Jesus and Emily's Italian adventure week due,
During Jesus's research of Tuscany this week he has discovered that the Tuscans are called the "mangiafagioli" (bean eaters) by other Italians, needless to say, they eat beans and eat beans often! They are also completely unbashful about their affinity for meat, which is usually grilled. If not grilled and braised. 
Tuesday:
We will be drinking a white blend from "Antinori" paired with Gnudi (don't worry Jesus will be clothed–the jury is still out on me though) Delicata squash, Chanterelles and shaved beets.
Then on to a Sangoviese from "Canalicchio di Sopra" with a Hanger steak, dried porcini, cannellini beans (of course) and fried Brussel sprouts.
Come celebrate fall with us.
Jesus and Emily

Bar Mingo Winemaker Dinner
Tuesday  October 7th, 2014—6:30 PM

Valter Scarbolo, Scarbolo Winery
Fruili, Italy

Hello Mingonians

     I will go out on a limb and say that the region of Italy that will soon be on the top of the "Travel Charts" will be Friuli- Venezia Guilia.
     Sitting on the top of the Adriatric Sea, bounded by Slovenia to the East, Anstria to the North, and Venice and the Veneto to the West and South, this compact region has it all:  great food and wine, warm, hospitable people, culture, geography that includes Alps, seacoasts, beautiful rolling vineyard lands; sophisticated, midsized university towns.  What more could you ask for?
     Dead center is the Scarbolo winery and famous restaurant, La Frasca.  Valter does it all: runs his terrific osteria; his shed where 50 or so pigs are raised each year for prosciutto and salami, his eponymous winery, where his estate grown grapes are converted to beautiful Friulian wines.
     Our guest this Tuesday is Valter Scarbolo, dynamic and passionate winemaker; great representative of the region; and a great guy!
     Please do yourself a favor and come Tuesday for a Friulian Italian dinner with Scarbolo wines.
Cost: $65 per person plus gratuity.  Limited to 32 people.  6:30 PM Tuesday, October 7th at Bar Mingo.  Call 445-4646 or e-mail your reservation to barmingo@comcast.net

                                  Thanks,
                                  Mike Cronan

Food is good but the portion is a bit small and comparatively expensive. But the atmosphere is pretty nice.

Bar Mingo is a lot of fun. We go here when we can't think of any place else to go or on Sundays where they have start having live music. Totally worth it. Their drinks are heavenly and their portions sizes are splendid. Not so much that you feel gorged. You cannot go wrong here, but you may want to get here early to grab a table.
