The Berkshire Restaurant Review

: Pulsating with lively neighborhood crowds, this pig-centric restaurant in the Stapleton area is a siren song to trendy couples, young families and anyone else who has an affinity for pork, a mainstay on the playful American menu. The dimly lit space, flanked by flickering candlelight, flat-screen TVs, dark woods and a charcuterie station boasting an old-fashioned meat slicer direct from Italy, is unpretentious and irreverent, much like the dishes, that while artfully crafted never take themselves too seriously. Where else, for example, will you find a bacon, caramelized banana and chunky peanut butter sandwich stacked between two slices of Hawaiian bread? We like the quirky combination as much as the bone-in pork chop paired with mini loaded baked potatoes and grilled asparagus. Our favorite dish, however, may be a flight of bacon, dispensed in four different flavors, including curried, candied, garlic-infused and glazed with balsamic. Lighter appetites aren't admonished: there are plenty of salads, too, including a number with roasted beets, olives and pea shoots. Still, the pig rules, and for a fitting finale, order the gold-dusted truffles pelted with flecks of bacon. Pigging out has never tasted so good.
