District residents interested in tasting dishes from forthcoming poultry-centric eatery The Bird will have only one more chance to do so before it opens in Shaw this October.
The Pig (1320 14th St. NW) is slated host two pop-up tasting events to showcase selections from its new restaurant’s menu on Sept. 17 and 18.
During the special “Taste the Bird” brunch, chef Michael Bonk will prepare a variety of fowl dishes that include a “Birdcuterie board” with capon rillettes, duck prosciutto, pheasant galantine; smoked chicken benedict; and Tennessee-style hot chicken.
Though the brunch will showcase The Bird’s menu, pork fanatics will still be able to order some of The Pig’s popular menu items during the pop-up, Bonk said.
