The Spotted Pig
Posted by Mr. Brooklyn on 10/05/2009
I only tried the chopped liver and the hamburger. Very little liver taste and very little meat taste as well. I'm certainly no chef, I mean I can't even cook a can of Spagettios, however, it seems to me that when a chef lays a ton of salt on every dish they are either trying to cover up low grade ingredients, or they have no idea what they're doing.

Had heard good things about the burger so I recently ordered it. Aboslutely delicious at first but it was so incredibly salty, largely due to the roquefort, that I could barely bear to finish it. Just needs to be toned down. And prices are on the high side, but otherwise the atmosphere and service are both pleasant

After simpy rave -not -to-be - missed reviews of the Spotted Pig I finally got to take a look for myself. We waited a solid hour and a half to be seated on a Tuesday night. I was prepared for this and not in the least bothered...have a couple mojitos while you wait...they are divine. The sheep's ricotta gnudi are supremely executed...leaves not a thing to be desired. After our first course I was certain there was a diety or demi god crafting our food in the kitchen. I was SO excited to see what masterpiece would arrive as my entree. My date and I shared both the halibut and burger...surf and turf Spotted Pig style. The burger was SO woefully over salted that my palette was stunned into submission and unable to revel in anything for the duration of the meal. Was it the Roquefort? Perhaps. Either way the dish needs to be modified...holy sodium. Overall a really fun spot...fun atmosphere. Claustrophobes steer clear of this one.

Sure, the burger is amazing, but sweet christ every single thing on this menu is massively overpriced. I get that it's about the scene, not the food, but when the check came I felt like I'd been violated.

My friend and I ate at the Spotted Pig last night, and were so stoked to FINALLY go there. While the atmosphere was hot (lots of good looking people, kitschy set-up), the food was over salted. We ordered the gnudi for an app, and could barely finish because it was so salty. The burger and egg dish with ramps were also extremelely salty. Total bummer- Spotted Pig left a bad taste in our mouths. Maybe brunch is better?

Went for brunch on a Sunday. Honey, I wanted to see Jay-Z and Beyonce, but settled for some fancy tight lipped West Villagers. I waited a fair half an hour for brunch, and when we were seated I was asked to sit on a little stool. Well, when I squatted down on the stool I felt my jeans rise and sure enough.....Riiiiiiiiip! Darn those luxury designers! I wasn't sure if the draft meant my keester was showing, but baby, I had deviled eggs on my mind, so it would have to wait. I got those and the Gingerbread Pancakes. Doll, the eggs were silken eggliciousness, and the pancakes made me nearly shout with joy!! Or maybe it was the Bloody Mary! But either way, that food broke the dawn baby! I recommend. After eating, I stood up and pulled my jeans up. I think no one saw my show as I walked out, but I say either way, I will dance back in. Delicious!

Simple: the best burger in NYC. Bar none. Get there before 7PM if you want a seat.
