June of 2018 turned out to be a major month for Wilton resident Andy Pforzheimer, chairman and founder of the Barteca Restaurant Group, famous for Barcelona Wine Bars and Bartaco restaurants. He completed the sale of the chains.
On June 27, Irving, Texas-based company Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group Inc., announced it had completed the acquisition of the Barteca group for $325 million in cash, subject to customary adjustments set forth in the purchase agreement for Barteca’s consolidated debt, cash and working capital. The Barteca group will now be referred to as Del Frisco’s Emerging Brands. Pforzheimer could not be reached for comment, but Del Frisco sent a press statement.
