Spotted Pig (The)
This restaurant is located in the West Village. It is run by renowned chef April Bloomfield, known for her work at Chez Panisse, Kensington Place and River Cafe. Try the favorites, which include Marinated Black Fig Salad with Thyme & Parmesan and Pot Roast Rabbit with Fennel & Olives. For those who aren't too hungry, come here to try desserts like the cheese plate and the Creme Catalan. Since this joint serves British and Italian fare, there is also a good stock of wines and beers on offer. A hundred patrons can be easily accommodated, hence parties and events can be organized too, with prior intimation though.
One of my favorites.No sign outside only a swinging spotted pig. The place is always crowded and they do not take reservations. The food is absolutley amazing. You must try the filet, by far the best I have ever had.
There is always a very long wait at this place at all times. Sunday brunch is far from being an exception so 45 mins. wasn't too bad of a wait for us. Where would you ever find Soft Boiled Duck Egg with Pancetta & Endive and Pork Tonnata with Arugula on a brunch menu? Admittedly, the food was delicious but the portions were extremely scarce that I was still hungry after cleaning out my plate of pork tonnata and a piece of very yummy chicken liver toast. The burger with shoestring fries seem to be the only filling item on the menu. For $15, the miniscule brunch fare without any drink is on the high side. It doesn't make it any better that you have to wait an average of 1.5 hr to sit on a stool. So I'm not sure what the hype has been. I don't need to be back until sometime when it's not as popular anymore and I don't need to wait to get seated. So it may be awhile since I don't see its popularity diminishing that soon. The service wasn't bad and our waitress brought a unique red and green tilted bday candle glued on a saucer for Matt's bday.
Waited 2.5 hrs to sit on a hard stool and eat a 4 oz filet of sea bass with too much pepper on it. The restaurant was very loud and overcrowded. Someone was actually standing up and eating on a ledge over my shoulder because his wait was so long and there was no room. Service was slow and bad. Decor was cramped and dingy, but I guess that's the look they are going for. I am amazed at the people that will wait 2 hrs here to overpay for an average hamburger... am I missing something?
Some friends of mine took me to the Spotted Pig when I was in New York last weekend. I highly recommend the place for brunch. They take french toast and fried eggs to a new level. The seating is a bit tight so don't go if you are looking for a quiet and private spot.
loved the look of the place, had a very nice meal, nice wine selection . . . highly recommend dessert which i never get when i got out. next time i go Im asking to sit upstairs though -- our table was RIGHT AT THE FRONT DOOR which was the ONLY negative

Grand Central Terminal is one of New York's crown jewels, and the Oyster Bar, located in the basement, is certainly
one of the high points of Grand Central. Cavernous, loud and casual, this is where New Yorkers come to ...
