Why No Hound Raves for The Salty Pig?

Didn't know about this palce til I had some amazing cheeses from them the other night at an event. Could find no recent threads on them. Their menu looks v interesting. Smoked mushrooms? Yes, please! Recent experiences, anyone? thx.

  1. Ate their with some hounds. Not very noteworthy. Snout to tail gone mainstream with all the adventure (and bones and chewy bits) taken out for you.

    e.g. boneless pigtail (wtf) turned into little hocky pucks not too far removed from chicken mcnuggets.

    1. I had a short-rib sandwich and a beer at the bar there for lunch recently, thought it was a good option for the neighborhood on that score, and better than its last three predecessors in that space. But I haven't explored the menu.

      1. The cheese and charcuterie is obviously not made in-house (unless it's under the table). But it's well curated. The pizza is all about the well-curated toppings. The patio is nice.

        1. We really like the place. We generally nibble on cheese and charcuterie. I have also had good salads. Not a huge fan of their pizza ...

          1. had a bite there in mid-april after a conference. the margarita pizza was excellent -- just sauce fresh mozz and basil -- and plenty for 2. a good bargain at $10.

            also tried a couple of small plates. the porchetta was flavorful, but sliced too thin to be juicy. the chicken liver mousse was delicious.
