The Spotted Pig


The Spotted Pig

Blame talented toque April Bloomfield for the inevitable wait at this still-hopping West Village gastropub—a pioneer in the kind of meaty go-big-or-go-home grub that’s proliferated since the spot’s 2004 opening. The Pig still serves one of New York City’s best burgers, a rare patty heaped with intense Roquefort cheese and served with a tower of rosemary- and garlic-kissed shoestring fries. Equally legendary is the crispy pig ear salad—among the city’s first cultish offal dishes—napped in a lemony caper dressing. Bookend this prodigal feast with pints of proprietary cask-drawn bitter ale and a spiced ginger cake with a dollop of whipped cream for dessert.

There's a reason this place is a Critic's pick. They've gotten a lot of things right: the layout accommodates a bar scene + proper dining; the food is delicious; the drinks are strong; and the crowd is typical of West Village. Be prepared to wait a while if you don't have reservations though! There's a bar upstairs and down, FYI ;-)

The burger, yes, is wonderful, but their breakfasty brunch items are a treat too. And hot tip: arrive at 11am on a weekend and you'll be seated almost immediately.

The burger here was immense. Juicy, packed with flavour, and topped with a wonderful blue cheese. The skinny fries really are what they say - skinny - they are basically skinny potato chips. Although they are nice, they are a little greasy and difficult to eat without making a huge mess. Unfortunately I didn't see Taylor Swift when I was there, but this place really lives up to its hype - a cool little joint!
