The new location of Bourgeois Pig (at 111 East 7th Street, across from the old one) is opening Wednesday, and this is your first look at the space. Owner Ravi DeRossi says he plans to keep the old and new locations open simultaneously for two weeks, after which the old spot will become a New World wine bar with a gourmet line of grilled cheese sandwiches and homemade reproductions of Hostess products. As for the new Pig, expect beer and Champagne cocktails created by Philip Ward, head barkeep of DeRossis other bar Death & Co., and Champagne punches served in silver punch bowls. Operating hours are 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
