Posto Pig Roast Report

calisson | May 13, 2013 01:02 PM

After several false starts and years of longing I finally rounded up enough people to do a pig roast at Posto. I chose Posto over Citizen's Public because the sides sounded more alluring, and I knew the pigs they serve had previously had a happy, free ranging, organic life (the ones at CP might too--I just don't know either way).

Over all it was mixed, food-wise. The presentation was lovely, the sides very good, and the pork meat itself wonderful, moist, tender, and flavorful. However the skin was inedible--crisp, yes, but so leathery it wasn't even cut-able, let alone chewable. The staff person at Posto said that was because it was a young pig. I have no idea if this is true or not, but as crackling skin is a major draw for me, that was a pretty big disappointment.

From a social point of view the evening was a huge success, though, so I have no regrets. I guess I'll have to try CP some time!
