What to Eat at Pigfest 2010

By

T.W. Food will devote May 13 to all things porcine with Pigfest 2010. The seven-course dinner will be full of pig parts from lardo (which appears in a salad with foie gras and beets) to feet and ears, which are popped into a puff pastry with some potato. The menu, below, costs $65 with an optional $39 wine pairing, and reservations are available by calling the restaurant.
