The Tipsy Pig Restaurant Review

: This Chestnut Street gathering spot boasts a creative American menu that speaks to its gastropub point of view, without ever getting too ahead of itself. Spaced across a lively bar area, back "library" dining room and outdoor patio, the overall aesthetic pulls together the coziness of an English pub with a stylish, modern sensibility. Comfort appetizers such as macaroni and cheese with smoked bacon hark back to childhood, especially given the use of macaroni thimbles; however, the decadent, creamy texture and hint of bacon elevate the dish to gourmet status. The house bruschetta is dressed up with sophisticated ingredients, such as roasted broccoli di Cicco, bringing nuttiness and new texture to this well-known starter. Old favorites include a nicely composed chicken potpie, topped with a buttery crust capable of evoking sighs of pleasure. Inside, a soupy thyme-heavy chicken filling swims with seasonal veggies. Most of the mains play it safe, such as the fried chicken, burger, and pork chop, but there are a few more refined dishes. The seared day boat scallops, for example, while successfully executed, don't satisfy in the same way as the heartier dishes. The pub's beer menu is substantial, as is its generous wine list and adventurous cocktail menu.
