Have been meaning to try this place for 5 months ever since last year. Enough reviews about this place. Financial Times, NY Observers, NY Times blah, blah, blah. Well, the food is good, that sustain my test. And oh my god, it is a hot scene here on Sunday night! And if you are happen to be a pig lover, you will love the cute deco.

Let them get settled before you go

We tried for an early Saturday dinner, and it was a disaster. They don't accept reservations for parties under 6, which means you need to get there early, and it will be VERY crowded. We managed to get a seat at the bar and ordered some wine (very nice, creative list), and got our appetiser, which was excellent (April Bloomfield is a promising talent). However, the service was horribly slow. More than 20 minutes after our appetisers were cleared, we inquired about our entrees, and were told at least 10 more minutes. We had tickets for a performance and had to leave. Unfortunately we were scolded by our server, and later the proprietor, for not letting them know we were in a rush (we had 1 hr 30 mins from when we sat down to when we needed to leave, and we ordered quickly, so this should not have needed to be a rush order!). The proprietor chose to yell at us on the street corner outside of the restaurant, suggesting that he, and the restaurant, need to mature a bit before the potential is realized.

The Pig Pours a Perfect Pint!

The Pig is a great local pub that is equally perfect for a post-work beer or a leisurely Sunday evening pint. The food is always incredibly good. The staff is fabulous, friendly and low-key - if only the same could be said for all of the customers!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
