EatWell DC’s newest restaurant, The Pig, recently announced their new brunch offering. Beginning Saturday, June 30, you can park a seat and fill up on classic brunch fare with a twist as curly as a pig’s tail at the 14th Street restaurant.

Featured dishes include a smoked ham Benedict with a buttermilk biscuit, duck egg, and poblano hollandaise; gnocchi & eggs bacon lardon; and huevos tomatillos, complete with eggs, smoked chorizo, lentils, and house cheese on a corn tortilla.

Vegetarians and vegans, don’t fear!  The Pig will be offering a garden omelet complete with salad and grilled bread; chickpea hash with eggs and greens; sweet potato pancakes with crème fraiche; and roasted beets salad with chef’s cheese and pomegranate reduction. Vegan options include an heirloom radish salad and fruit salad.

Since opening its doors in mid-May, The Pig has offered up delicious meals featuring every part of our porcine companions. Sourcing fruits and vegetables from EatWell DC’s Natural Farm in La Plata, MD, The Pig’s culinary team receives whole pigs, which they break down in-house.

Ranging from a salad featuring crispy pig ears to an ice cream sundae containing pig’s blood, the menu by Chef Garret Fleming is diverse, creative, and tasty. Also featured are a number of craft beers and cocktails made from small-batch spirits. The Pig is at 1320 14th Street NW, just south of Rhode Island Avenue.
