    The soft-egg starter is a winner as was the charming band playing the Saturday night we were there.

    Get the Coppa, which came from the owners personal pig - it was better than the Coppa I had in Piedmont Italy!

    Great Barrington's go-to spot for no-nonsense local fare prepared expertly. Go for pork, which comes from owner Mark Firth's own pigs.

    Restaurant is changing its name to The Prairie Whale, which means hog in 1800s America

    After buying a Monterey farm, the owners of Williamsburg's Diner just opened this new spot that serves their lamb & pork

    Limited uninspired menu. pork belly sandwich nothing but fat. Better choices in the area.
