Former CIC student Cole Poolaw gets his first review at Barsa

"Spicy, succulent tapas selections ignite the appetite with fire and flavor at Barsa Tapas, Lounge, & Bar, the uptown eatery conceived by restaurateur Drazen Romic, the owner and manager of Lana Restaurant and Bar. ...

"At the young age of 23, chef Cole Poolaw commands respect for his proficient delivery of an intricate menu requiring balance, authenticity, and diversity of ingredients. We found his preparations to be attractive, satisfying, and well executed and also appreciated his occasional presence in the dining room to briefly visit with guests. In addition to the regular menu, Barsa expands daily offerings with a Monday food and beverage night honoring industry employees, reduced prices for wines by the bottle on Wednesday, and Thursday-night sangria specials."
