The Pig Beach team, with a restaurant in Gowanus under its belt, heads to Greenwich Village to open Pig Bleecker.
Chef Matt Abdoo, an eight-year alum of Del Posto, is expanding beyond the restaurant’s barbecue roots to focus on smoke-centric comfort food.
Dishes include deviled steak and eggs; crispy hatch vinegar barbecue chicken lollipops with Alabama white sauce; and large format items such as smoked fried whole Bell Rouge chicken with cheesy grits and honey. Sweets include milkshakes (both boozy and not), Key lime pie, and soft serve hot fudge brownie sundae.
Cocktails include seasonal creations such as the Winter Julep, with rye, winter syrup, Alpine liqueur, and mint; the wine list offers global, accessible wines and a list of rare, high-end selections from small purveyors.
Global and accessible wines that complement Chef Abdoo’s menu include a selection of large format wines and two varieties on tap. Guests can also peruse the “Reserve” list—a special selection of rare and high-end bottles sourced from small purveyors.
Open Tuesday to Sunday from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Lunch and late night service to follow.
