Visiting NYC (from Chicago) next weekend and looking for some recommendations for a birthday dinner on Sunday for my husband. He loves pork (pork chops in particular). Are there any restaurants that are similar in price point and and similarly meat-centric to Girl and the Goat, Publican, Gilt Bar, The Purple Pig in Chicago? Greatly appreciate any input!
Which restaurant in nyc or nearby serves great pork chops?
I've been to Publican, Purple Pig, and Girl and the Goat in Chicago, and those are all great restaurants but IIRC they either book up well in advance (3 months for GaTG) or have a long wait.
Are you willing to wait or take a very early/very late reservation time since you're looking so close to your dinner date?
There are many restaurants in NYC known for pork or pork dishes...not as many that are quite as pork obsessed at Purple Pig though. Maybe the Breslin? Bar Boulud for charcuterie. Otto for similarly themed vegetable antipasti. Prune for a similar take on bone marrow.
Off the top of my head, I can name signature pork dishes at different restaurants here (not all of them will be as pork focused throughout the menu though):
Porchetta at Locanda Verde
Pork chop at Babbo or Little Owl or Torrisi (they may not have it on the menu the night you are here though
)Maialino al forno at Maialino
Deep fried bacon at Fatty Cue
Taiwanese Gua bao at BaoHaus
Steamed pork buns (a cross between gua bao and peking duck West coast style) at Momofuku Noodle Bar, Momofuku Ssam Bar, or Momofuku Milk Bar
Roast pork at Great NY Noodletown
The pork porterhouse at Craft
