Bar Buca - reservation?

I heard that Bar Buca is open! Does anyone have a number I can call to TRY and get a reservation? TIA!

  1. If it's actually open, it's a soft opening or friends and family only, I kind of doubt it as Robb Gentile is currently on vacation.

    1. I assume you can just call Buca. If you do, please report back as Bar Buca on Portland looked like it was still papered up today when I went by.

      I also heard it was open so maybe I am mistaken. Or perhaps they have simply taken the 'we don't need a sign" ego to the next level where they don't even have to take the paper down!?

      1. Called and confirmed that Bar Buca will be open on January 27th :)

        1. Looks like it's open. He's showing yummy pics on Instagram.

              Hmmm....that's odd! Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe the pics are just teases ;)

                It's tough to tell driving by but I will find out for sure tomorrow!

                  It's open

                  At least for now it's no reservations.

            2. I just read on instagram that he will be opening the front cafe as of tomorrow.
