According to Tasting Table (whose special at A Voce was a sham!), Marlow & Daughters have started carrying Bev Eggleston pigs—the beloved and sustainably raised pork used in Gramercy Tavern, Back Forty, and Craft. Unfortunately, they only get 1 pig a week which is divided between the butcher shop’s customers and Marlow & Sons’ kitchen. You have to beat out the restaurant to get to some of these delectable cuts such as $9/lb. pork shoulder and $17/lb. bone-in pork chops. I want dibs on the pork belly! I may have insider help... what’s up Scott??
Could any 4 words sound better together? From 6:00 - 9:00 every Tuesday night, Marc Forgione will be serving all-you-can-eat sucking pig sliders along with a 2-for-1 beer special (it probably will not be Porkslap... but you never know). The suckling pig is cured in salt, sugar & aromatic spices and then cooked in beer, bacon & butter. For $29 there will also be a limited Suckling Pig Face Special—also a great combination of 4 words. You’ll get to stuff your pig face with grilled toast, smoked whipped potatoes, green mustard, house made pickles and spicy red cabbage.
