A Moveable Feast

Anything having to do with dining, at home or out on the town...looking for restaurant visitations, sitings, great dishes, good times and the odd post of what ever catches my fancy!

The Spotted Pig

On Friday night's visit, supping with the gorgeous and dynamic Erin Brockovitch avec hubby Eric, Fab Chef Tom Valenti and wife Abigail and food writer extraordinaire, Michael Ruhlman, not to mention my man Richie, went down to the West Village, to fetch ourselves something yummy.

Let's hear it for another New York bar scene, with fab food until the wee hours of the morn...Only the team of Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich and an unusual investor from Dublin could think up something so cozy, wild and local. Try the Radish Salad, light and bright or the Sheep Cheese Knudie (like gnocce) with brown butter and sage, and a smashing Smoked Trout round out some upper tier apps. A truly great burger and Pork Sausages with Pumpkin Polenta weigh in on entrees memorable. My table's only complaint "Not enough Pig on the menu!" The Chocolate Bourbon Cake with creme fraiche, is not to be missed!

Paul, sorry we missed you!
