THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Skinny Pig Restaurant Review

: The Skinny Pig is a tiny restaurant with a limited menu and no bar or wine list (unless you BYOB), but it offers the kind of fresh meal that you might not find anywhere else in the city. The tasty kale salad is composed with kiwi, Mandarin oranges, strawberries, barley, pumpkin seeds and a vinaigrette blended from cilantro, lime and poppy seeds. You can order a salad as a side to the main draw, which is chef Josh Campbell's blue-cornmeal flatbreads. The menu offers six kinds of flatbreads, topped with something ordinary (like pork tenderloin) and something unexpected (like chile cilantro peaches), plus a few extra ingredients. We recommend the one topped with artichoke, asparagus, bell peppers, zucchini, tomatoes and mozzarella; or another version with beets, wild mushroom pâté, sweet and sour eggplant, curry and cucumber yogurt. They're moderately sized, meaning you might still have room for dessert. There's a different flavor of ice cream daily, like banana marshmallow or soft-serve vanilla nutty bar. But come early if you're there for dinner. Tables fill up quickly, and the restaurant closes at 8 p.m. on weeknights.
