The Bourgeois Pig

There’s nothing bourgeois about the industrial metal steps down to this Greenwich Village wine-and-fondue spot. But inside, ornate mirrors and antique chairs give the tiny red-lit space a decidedly decadent feel. Trendy locals snack on tasty bruschette or bubbling cheese fondue—the raclette is extremely good—served with heaps of assorted breads, crudités and fresh fruit for dipping. The brief wine list is well chosen and prices are halved during the weekend happy hour (5–7pm) and all night on Mondays and Tuesdays. At those prices, it’s easy to make a pig of yourself.

To walk into this East Village wine bar is to stroll into another era. A simple façade adorned by wooden shutters and flickering torches gives way to a dimly lit lair that evokes an air of medieval luxury. The elegant décor (ornate tin ceiling, velvet and brocade upholstered furniture) seems fit for Versailles, but masculine metal accents add a sort of Game of Thrones ruggedness. The intimate hideaway hosts couples and small groups who settle in to sip wine- and beer-based quaffs finished with bitters, fresh fruits and house-infused spirits, or share bottles from a curated roster of French labels. Decadent Alsatian specialties like bubbly raclette and thin-crust tarte flambee stand out among other European indulgences like riffs on classic fondue (elevated with shrimp and lobster stock or cotija and chorizo).

This is a great little place!I have only been once but tucked away in the heart of NYU territory it’s a nice break from the typical bars and crowds east of 6th.It is completely over the top in terms of décor but that totally works for it! It’s the perfect place to head to for a few glasses of wine to start or end an evening!

This is a very romantic venue, which I had no idea about when I made a reservation here for me and a co-worker. Nevertheless the food was great. It's a little dark and muggy but overall a good place for pre dinner snacks. Not much else to say, it's not amazing, but not terrible. Not super cheap but not too expensive. Try it once, but I wouldn't go back here again.
