On Monday, October 15, the District’s five EatWell DC restaurants will donate 15 percent of their dining (and drinking) proceeds to DC Greens, an organization that focuses on food and community in DC.

DC Greens connects District communities to healthy food by supporting school gardens in all eight Wards of the city and by managing food access initiatives so that low-income communities have access to fresh, healthy and local food. DC Greens also runs the DC Farm to School Network, deepening students’ connection to their food through experiential learning.

To help support DC Green’s community-wide efforts in health and sustainability, GiveWell DC, the charitable arm of EatWell DC, selected DC Greens for the October 15th Dine-Out event.

Four of Five Restaurants in Neighborhood

The five participating restaurants include Logan Tavern (1423 P Street NW), Commissary (1443 P Street NW), Grillfish (1200 New Hampshire Avenue NW), The Heights (3115 14th Street NW) and The Pig (1320 14th Street NW).

Dinner reservations for Logan Tavern, Commissary, Grillfish and The Heights can be made on Open Table. Make sure to note DC Greens in the “Special Requests” section of the online form. Please call (202) 290-2821 to make reservations for The Pig.

EatWell DC restaurants will donate 15 percent of dining proceeds to City Dogs Rescue for the GiveWell DC Dine-Out event on August 13. (Image courtesy of City Dogs Rescue)

From Rachel Nania. Check out her blog, Sear, Simmer & Stir. Follow Nania on Twitter @rnania, email her at rachel[AT]borderstan.com. 

On Monday, August 13, five EatWell DC restaurants in Borderstan will donate 15% of their dining (and drinking) proceeds to City Dogs Rescue, a DC-based nonprofit that rescues adoptable dogs in overcrowded and high-kill shelters.

In its first ten months since formation in 2011, City Dogs Rescue adopted out 73 dogs (to date) to families in the DC area, many of which were within days and hours of being euthanized. However, costs associated with rescue are not cheap, and services such as urgent veterinary care, vaccinations, transport and shelter fees rack up.

To help ensure the nonprofit meets its critical rescue and operating costs, GiveWell DC, the charitable arm of EatWell DC, selected City Dogs Rescue for the August 13th Dine-Out event.

The event will run from 5:30 until 10 pm at Logan Tavern (1423 P Street NW), Commissary (1443 P Street NW), Grillfish (1200 New Hampshire Avenue NW), The Heights (3115 14th Street NW) and The Pig (1320 14th Street NW).

All neighbors, friends, dog lovers and foodies are encouraged to come out, eat and support the local organization. To ensure guests are having a doggone good time, City Dogs Rescue will even bring some of its adoptable pooches to greet guests outside two of the restaurants.

Dinner reservations for Logan Tavern, Commissary, Grillfish and The Heights can be made on Open Table. Make sure to note City Dogs Rescue in the “Special Requests” section of the online form. Please call (202) 290-2821 to make reservations for The Pig.

Looking to offer more support? City Dogs Rescue is looking for hosts and volunteers for the Monday night event. Hosts are asked to bring at least four friends or family members with them, and volunteers are needed to help the organization handle the dogs and staff the information and merchandise tables.

For more information on becoming a host, contact Meredith[AT]@CityDogsRescueDC.org; to volunteer for the event, sign-up on the organization’s website.

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. (Also, see EatWell’s Newest Venture: The Pig Opens Thursday.)

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.

It’s been a couple of very busy weeks for David Winer and partners of the DC restaurant group, EatWell DC, but finally, the team’s most recent restaurant, The Pig, is scheduled to open on Thursday (May 17) at 1320 14th Street NW.

"David Weiner"

Luckily for us, we had the chance to visit the restaurant before its grand opening and speak with Winer about his fifth culinary establishment, just south of Rhode Island Avenue NW.

For him, the opening of The Pig was part of an evolutionary process; an inspiration and a journey that started with “going green,” embracing the movement and continually showing respect for the animal.

Winer fell in love with pork 10 years ago, while in Barcelona – a cultural haven for ham. And with the greatest aspirations, The Pig will bring sensibility back to food by using all of the parts and pieces of the animal, in the healthiest ways possible. The restaurant will nix the processed pickings and, instead, source fresh ingredients to populate the pork-centric and seasonal menu.

The 14th Street storefront location was a given for Winer; he loves the neighborhood, he lives in the neighborhood and owns two additional restaurants on the 1400 block of P Street NW (Logan Tavern and Commissary). Furthermore, Winer hopes to be an active part of the revitalization of 14th Street – He wants 14th to be restored to what it was: the most important street in Northwest DC, bustling with restaurants, retail and activity.

The Pig’s space is ample, bright and comfortable… and in Winer’s words, it is timeless. The restaurant seats 80 people, with room for 15 extra patrons at the bar. The Pig will serve tap wine in kegs and American craft beers, in addition to its own mixers and bitters with a variety of craft spirits.

The Pig will open May 14. It will be EatWell DC’s fifth restaurant. (Luis Gomez Photos)

From Luis Gomez. Catch his photos on Picplz and at One Photograph A Day. Follow him on Twitter @LuisGomezPhotos.

In Latin America there is a Spanish saying that translated to English goes something like this: “Each pig has its Saturday” meaning that at some point something that is to be expected will happen (must I describe it for you?). “The Pig”, in this case, is the newest restaurant in the EatWell DC group. While we have known it would happen soon, we now know the date: Monday, May 14.

The Pig will be at 1320 14th Street NW, just south of Rhode Island. It is the fifth of the group, which also includes Commissary and Logan Tavern on the 1400 block of P Street NW, The Heights in Columbia Heights and Grillfish, just south of Dupont Circle on New Hampshire Avenue NW.

According to Andy Phan, EatWell DC spokesperson, “The Pig’s décor will blend industrial with urban; dramatic lighting, patinas and striking art from another era and medium.”

Chef Garret Fleming is ready to serve us crafted food from Eco Friendly Farms in Virginia. The Pig will be serving plates designed to be shared, as well as full entrees with a price range of $4 to $14. The drink menu will include handcrafted cocktails, American craft beers, boutique Bourbons and earth-friendly wines. It will also offer tap wines from kegs with two whites and one red on “draft.”

The Pig, EatWell DC, 14th Street restaurants

“Nose to tail and farm to table.” (Borderstan)

By Michelle Lancaster. Got news, a hot tip or want to complain about something? Let her know on Twitter @michlancaster or email [email protected].

Despite its name, the Pig will serve vegetarian options when it opens this spring on 14th Street NW. My only question: Why you would want to skimp on porky goodness at a namesake restaurant?

At any rate, Washingtonian released more menu direction from chef Garret Fleming. Think pork belly on your eggs benny and some damn good charcuterie. This also raises an interesting question: What you do when a niche (nose to tail, farm to plate) becomes de rigueur for discerning diners?

Back in December, owner EatWell DC announced that the chef for The Pig would be Garret Fleming. He has worked in places including Eatonville and The Lincoln here in DC and hails from the East Coast, in areas spanning Charleston to Maine.
