The Bearded Pig is coming to Union Square

25 Jul

You can get pulled pork, ribs and fixin’s at Redbones in Davis Square or Blue Ribbon BBQ past Arlington Center (both hot favorites of mine) but they’re not authentic enough for Michael Schmidt.

The Jacksonville, Fla. man  grew up around good food, family recipes and worked at restaurants his father owned – from fancy upscale ones to pizza shops – and says he really misses good Southern food. So he decided to bring it here.

The Bearded Pig, slated to open any day now near Union Square, promises the real thing cheap and tasty. His catering clients can’t wait for some of that sliced brisket with creamy Southern slaw and his secret weapon – the original pit sauce. Check out the bare bones menu online.

Honey-jalapeno cornbread, four-bean sweet and sour beans, St. Louis spareribs? Cannot wait.
