Pig and Pickle

Dapuma | Dec 2, 2012 08:11 PM

The chef's from Atlas Bistro just opened up their place on Thomas and Hayden

Place is very cool insde, cement floors and high industrial ceilings, open floor plan for the entire dining room, and the kitchen is open as well which is fun to see what is going on in the back of the house as well, good vibe to the place, there is a glowing pig outside, and bacon soda for decoration inside, and pork belly on the table

they have their liquor license, they do not really have a cocktail menu so to speak, they have a good selection of beers and wines - orval for 7 and 750ml saisson for 12 (-1 for happy hour) - they had a few cocktails on the menu but it certainly is not the focus at the moment

Everything was really good, my favorite bite was the duck leg with the mung bean cake (crispy duck leg and it was pretty large, it is good enough you won't want to share it so if you are both eyeing it at the table just order two of them - not that it is small by any means), and apple and date dessert with whipped goat cheese and pine nuts, the goat cheese was very lightly whipped and softened by the heat of the tart so it really cut the sweetness of the tart and the pine nuts gave it the texture...great dessert

If you order the charcuterie make sure you ask for bread, it is a side order and a slight surcharge but it is fresh baked and awesome, you get multiple types of bread...the trout roulette is very tastey along with the rest of the board, trout is always going to be a winner for me, along with many types of pork, pickles, pickled onions etc

For being open under 24 hours I dont know what more you could want

Great price point, staff is very friendly, most are Packer fans...what more can you want
