Kala Neighborhood Bistro opens in North Haven


The Kala Neighborhood Bistro, a new restaurant on Whitney Avenue in North Haven, held a soft opening Sunday, Sept. 10 and will open officially Thursday, Sept. 14.

The former site of Taste Restaurant has been redesigned with refinished floors, sound proof ceiling panels, a new bar and kitchen upgrades.

Visitors enjoyed tempting appetizers, wine and champagne at the soft opening, which was attended by state Rep. Dave Yaccarino, who lives in the neighborhood.

Manuel Romero, co-owner and head chef, created Kala’s menu. The bistro offers small bites, appetizers and main dishes that range from codfish mousse and stuffed sweet piquillo peppers to fillet mignon and duck confit cassoulet.

The Kala Neighborhood Bistro will be open for dinner Mondays through Saturdays and closed Sunday “our day of rest,” said Romero, who operates Olea, an award winning restaurant in New Haven that serves Mediterranean fare.
