Organic Food Provider ‘Barvida’ Planned for Elm Street

An organic, plant-based juice bar and café is planned for a vacant storefront on Elm Street. 

Barvida, which opened a location in Darien more than one year ago, is planned for 137 Elm St. in New Canaan, according to a building permit application filed with the town. An estimated $100,000 interior fit-out is planned for the commercial space, according to the application, filed April 25. Barvida LLC is listed as the tenant/lessee on the application, which calls for a remodel with electrical and plumbing alterations, installation of an ADA bathroom, service counters and a food service ceiling with food prep areas. Barvida seeks to “provide our customers with premium nutritional beverages, meals, and products that are specifically curated for health & wellness without compromising on flavor (no more sad salads here),” according to its website.
