Like everyone else, we enjoy the food at the Spotted Pig, but we’ve wondered why there isn’t more pork on the menu — there’s the name, after all, and the fact that there are probably about 3,000 images of pigs crammed inside the restaurant. But someone from the kitchen tells us we’ll soon be able to satisfy all of our porky urges, with none other than Red Wattle suckling pigs, deboned, stuffed porchetta style with garlic and fried sage, and roasted. Our source tells us the dish may be available as soon as this month, weekends only. We’ll keep you updated — we’ve spent some time checking out elite hogs with Spotted Pig chef April Bloomfield, as chronicled here, and we know this is a story worth following.
