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.
