The Spotted Pig

Check out the ultra-hip Spotted Pig restaurant in the West Village next time you're in New York. Their Chicken Liver Toast is a huge fan-favorite and definitely a unique feature on their menu. I, however, chose their "Chargrilled Burger with Roquefort Cheese & Shoestrings." What I received was a huge pile of fries and a burger that would have tasted better with some lettuce and a few slices of tomato. The large beef patty was delicious, as was the Roquefort cheese placed in the burger, but it was missing a few key elements of taste that I would have preferred. The shoestring fries were great with flavors of rosemary and garlic--I'd be surprised if anyone could actually finish all of them in one sitting! All in all, the vibe of this place is cute and hipster-ish with a menu that is more high-end than expected when you walk in. Definitely check it out if you're in the area!
