Swine Restaurant Review

: As the name suggests, this West Village restaurant is a shrine to the swine, a pantheon of all things pork. The bi-level space --- a bar above and a more formal dining room down below --- is bedecked with handsome dark wood. And the menu? It’s like a compendium of New York City food trends: there’s plenty of bone marrow, Brussels sprouts and bacon. But your cynicism may melt once the dishes hit the table. A brisket and bone marrow burger is worth a second or third visit, while roasted pork belly is unctuous and flavorful. The large selection of charcuterie is made for snacking (the beef tongue pastrami is particularly good). There are a handful of beers on tap and by the bottle and a long and affordably priced, pork-friendly wine list. And if you still have a porcine yen at the end of the meal, there’s always the Swine Sundae, which includes bacon ice cream and bacon-spiked melted chocolate. Staff is friendly.
