      In that case, the crunchy and unctuous deep fried pork trotters at Grill 21 might be right up your alley. You can get the German version (Schweinshax'n) with a liter of beer at Lederhosen.

        There are some superb dishes with guanciale at both Lupa and Franny's (in Brooklyn). I am probably in the minority in preferring the Franny's pastas to Lupa but wow do they do pork well!

        I can't think of pork tenderloin dishes I loved off the top of my head however I have had fantastic pork belly at Dovetail.

          The Crackling Pork Shank at Maloney and Porcelli is fabulous.

                I really like the steamed pork buns at mei li wah (baked ones were not so great). Rost pork soup with noodles at big wong, pork chop at babbo (little owl pork chop was great too but I only had it once over a year ago), #4 at Bánh Mì Saigon Bakery

            My favorite pork dishes in the city are at Fatty Crab, Momofuko, and Blue Hill. Any type of cuisine in particular that you're looking for?

                Yeh, the pig face chip at Blue Hill is pretty awesome.

                I just had a pig old mess of baby pig at Great NY Noodletown on Sunday.. For 11 bucks they gave me perfectly cooked, crispy, and juicy suckling pig..
