EatWell DC, owner and operator of such neighborhood favorites as Logan Tavern and Commissary, has named the chef for their upcoming restaurant, The Pig. Chef Garret Fleming has worked in places like Eatonville and The Lincoln here in DC and along the East coast from Charleston to Maine.
“Chef Fleming’s style is an amalgam of classical French and southern Italian cooking, with influences from his birthplace of Charleston, SC; a port city known for its “low-country” cuisine historically linked to its Spanish, French, Italian and African roots,” according to EatWell.
The restaurant plans to focus on locally sourced ingredients and will feature snout to tail dishes from ethically raised animals. The menu will be inspired by and feature produce from EatWell’s own farm in La Plata, Maryland and pork, the protein of choice here, will all be locally sourced as well.
At just 70 seats, The Pig promises to be an intimate dining experience. The Pig is set to open in Spring 2012 at 1320 14th Street NW, south of Rhode Island Avenue.
