The Black Pig Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Michael Nowak takes simplicity to new heights at The Black Pig, where seasonal ingredients inform the satisfying, straightforward cooking. Worn brick walls, narrow wooden tabletops and a graffiti-style mural set the tone for the urban-chic space, while sleek white plates offer a stark canvas for the attractively presented dishes. The menu changes frequently, but has included the likes of beetroot salad with fennel, apple and crème fraîche, as well as braised short ribs with an earthy cauliflower purée. Desserts are quaint and satisfying. The pot de crème, for example, will do if you're craving a sweet ending. To drink, the bar stocks dozens of craft brews as well as eight on tap. Craft cocktails are also an option; we like the Ram Jam, a blend of tequila, orange, Antica, lime and blackberry. The wine list, while brief, has some solid selections.
