You know you’ll be in hog heaven at any place that offers a weekly Pork Happy Hour. The artisan butcher, with outlets at the Ferry Building and Hayes Valley, does daily sandwiches that showcase its premium salumi, roasted and smoked meats and succulent pork products. On Wednesday evenings (5:30–7pm), they butcher a whole hog, and guests get to sample all the trimmings accompanied by other small bites and wine/beer. The daily sandwich menu includes a porchetta sandwich on focaccia with fennel, arugula, Meyer lemon and luscious hunks of melt-in-mouth roasted pork. And don’t miss the meatball sandwich—a drippy, rich meal-and-a-half, made with pork, beef and ricotta meatballs, heirloom tomato sauce, basil and shaved grana padano cheese.
