Deep Space Swine
A Never-Ending Supply of Pork on 14th Street

Go to a pizzeria and you can get your pizza 15 different ways. Hit up a burger joint: no shortage of options there.

But when you’re craving some pig (you know it happens), you’re bound to find but one menu item featuring your beloved pork.

No longer.

So welcome The Pig, slated to open Wednesday on 14th Street to bring you all the permutations of swine in one place.

This is from the folks behind Commissary and the Heights, but this entrant is a little more... specialized.

Now, they don’t take reservations. View this as an opportunity to sit at the butcher-block bar and get to work on their 40 small-batch whiskeys, keg wine and flights of craft beer.

Before too long, they’ll lead your carnivorous crew to your table, which is probably surrounded by subway tiles and blown-up liquor excise stamps from states like Minnesota and Iowa (pig-loving states, all).

Your menu is simple: it’s basically divided into “Pig” and “Less Pig.” Easy enough choice, so you’ll start out with some cured meats and adventurous shared plates like trotter ravioli with duck yolk, and porchetta with brains and roast stuffed belly. Then it’s on to entrées like pig ramen and crispy pork shank.

And don’t forget the pork bread pudding for dessert.

No, not really.
