Hey GOOD-LOOKING LOS ANGELES 3.1.12 God sees your prayer and raises

Pigg Is all that's on the menu

Opening tomorrow in DTLA's new high-end, food-court-style, cafeteria-esque UMAMIcatessen, Pigg's a stand from renowned Bay Area offal-master/Iron Cheffer Chris Cosentino, who, per the name, will serve up literally every kind of pork you can imagine, except, perve, that kind.

Tough Luxe: The 2012 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Rated the most luxurious SUV in its class[1], the Jeep® Grand Cherokee Overland Summit comes loaded with a power-shaded sunroof, heated steering wheel, and leather-wrapped interiors featuring wood veneers so real, even George Washington’d be jealous. Live life grandly, here 1. Based on 2011 Wards Middle/Sport Utility segment, and latest available competitive information. Jeep®, Grand Cherokee and Overland Summit are registered trademarks of Chrysler Group LLC

The menu's split into seven glorious sections, each containing enough piggy to make you want to screw the signal fire and form your own island tribe, including: "Cured", w/ 15 bacons from the US, Spain & Italy; "Canned", w/ offerings like a classic rillette and whipped lardo; and "Salad" -- don't worry, they're topped w/ cracklins and pig ear. And that's far from all: there're also three sandwiches (country pate w/ cornichon & mustard; hoof & mouth w/ pickled carrots & onions; and a liver pate w/ caramelized onions & arugula), a duo of cooked pates, two raw crudo-hams, and "Fried Snacks" like fries served w/ homemade "brainaise", which makes for great leftovers, especially 28 Days Later. In case you're not down with the swine, the UMAMIcatessen's got a ton of other stuff too, including a full bar, an Umami Burger, a super-sweet doughnut-and-coffee spot, and a Jewish deli called The Cure, whose Kosher customers will consider Pigg's food all kinds of nasty, except, ew, not that kind either!
