Pig Bleecker Is Not Healthy

But Who Cares?

Two days before the inauguration, us New Yorkers will have a place for smoked hot chicken and cheesy grits, and soft-serve hot fudge brownie sundaes. A place that’s also rich in cocktails.

In other words, here comes the restaurant we need right now.

It’s Pig Bleecker, a sleek, wooded place for “fuck it” dinners and cocktails from the Pig Beach team. It’s got the requisite pig statue, and it opens Wednesday.

Here, you’ll throw caution to the wind at full speed with deviled steak and eggs, boozy milkshakes and that chicken we mentioned. In the slideshow, you’ll see many more such indulgences. So let’s get to that.

Geoff Rynex is the only person named Geoff Rynex in the history of mankind. He would rather have the best burger than the best steak, likes hearing bartender stories and spends too much money on clothes.
