Everyone raves about the burger, but while waiting for our table, I was able to experience some of the best appetizers I've ever had as a warm up to the entree. The deviled egg was delectable - smooth and creamy it almost felt dessertlike. The Devils on Horseback was the most interesting name on the menu so being a little adventuous, I had to try it. It was amazing. They were bacon-wrapped pears in a pitted prune with just enough of a heat kick with the sweetness that it made for a great compliment to the Spotted Pig bitter that I was drinking. The best appetizer though, had to be the Ricotta Gnudi with brown butter and sage. This is the type of dish that you wish you were alone with because you're not going to want to share it.
Overall, the critics are right. This place is a place to try. Although busy, it's a fun environment and great staff servicing tremendous food. Nice work Spotted Pig!
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!
