Hog & Hominy Restaurant Review

: Hog & Hominy is the casual sister restaurant to Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen, both of which are run by chefs Michael Hudman and Andrew Ticer. The spacious dining area, modern metal chairs, and exposed kitchen combine for a sleek, hip interior. The menu features gourmet wood-fired pizzas, meaty plates (sweetbreads, duck sausage, short ribs) and farm-fresh vegetables, such as collards with pork belly and hominy. The chefs are particularly fond of using all parts of the pig, so pork appears in many dishes. Hog & Hominy is likely as well-known for its inventive cocktails as for its food. Throwback tipples, such as the Manhattan or Sidecar, have been artfully mastered, and signature drinks are unlike anything else being poured in the city. A small wine list includes keg wines and features small-batch wines, among them labels by Robert Turner, former Memphian and “garagiste” winemaker in Napa Valley. Grab a slice of the peanut butter pie or house-made gelato for dessert, and then meet friends outside at the bocce court for a ballgame. Sunday Funday’s menu highlights brunch dishes along with pizzas. The patio is dog-friendly, and they even provide dog treats at the adjoining Porcellino's butcher counter.
