    The Spotted Pig is one of the most influential restaurants of the last two decades. More importantly, it's an insanely fun place to spend an evening and the kitchen always knocks it out of the park. Read more

    Another New York favorite of mine. No reservations, put your name in & if it's a long wait go get a drink at the Rusty Knot. The steak, scallops, pork belly dishes I've had here have been amazing.

    One of the best items on their brunch menus.... Fried poached eggs with chorizo stew.. It is mouth watering goodness.. Wished I could go into the kitchen & have them show me to deep fry a poached egg!

    The fries at the Spotted Pig are so thin they surpass shoestring status. Try to bend them and you will see that they don’t fold; they snap. They are tossed with a mix of garlic and herbs. Read more

    New to the menu is a soup with pancetta & sage: roasted pumpkins with chicken stock, pancetta, & barley; mashed (instead of pureeing); and seasoned with Parmesan, olive oil, sage, and parsley. Read more

    After over a decade, it’s hard to beat April Bloomfield’s chargrilled burger topped with Roquefort cheese and nothing else. Save room for the shoestring fries flecked with garlic slivers and rosemary. Read more

    Grilled Cheese: It's made on filone from Sullivan Street Bakery; Fontina, Taleggio, and goat cheese melt into a single fresh, funky core, hot and molten against the crunch of the bread.

    Chargrilled Burger: We’re not trying to start any rumors, but this half-pound burger topped with Roquefort cheese may or may not have ended Taylor Swift’s feud with Kanye. So yeah, it’s good. Read more

    The Spotted Pig burger is a generously fatted bundle of beef, expertly char-grilled, showered in funky Roquefort blue & sandwiched between a cross-charred brioche. Crispy shoestring fries on the side.

    Everything is spectacular, gnucci, devil eggs, etc. I must say that the hamburguer isn't the best dish, the dishes with pig are incredible (I try some sort of pork rinds and was the best of all)

    I really enjoyed the ricotta gnudi but it's quite rich and heavy. The Roquefort burger definitely lives up to the hype and the fries are great to munch on.

    Totally worth the wait. Gnudis were amazing as starters, and the burgers are out of this world, with the thin fries! Enjoy one of the draught beers at the bar while waiting for your table.
  • Nick T.
    If you could love just one restaurant, I choose the pig. Varied spaces, the tight squeeze into your seat, the excellent snacks and mains, good cocktails, serviceable wines and dreamy liver toasts. Go!

    Chef April Bloomfield holds her own and then some at New York's top gastropub. Arguably the best restaurant burger in New York is served here, and the gnudi needs no introduction. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Easily an hour wait but anything on that menu is worth it. Burger with shoestring fries is your safest bet, but don't forget to try out their daily specials. Amazing experience in a fun setting.

    A toasted, buttery bun held the thick Chargrilled Burger which was topped well with a pungent Roquefort cheese. The crunchy and salty shoestring fries on the side made the meal perfectly complete.

    1st time? Yes, everyone will say gnudi and the burger. But after that, I rec the succotash, corn soup in the summer, crispy pig ears or cheeks if you're lucky- be specific when asking staff for recs
