The Spotted Pig
The Spotted Pig is a popular hangout bar. But it doesn’t only serve drinks. It also serves food-very good food. In fact, that is where its popularity largely lies. However, the drinks aren’t all the ordinary stuff you would find at most bars, either. Although there is plenty of that sort of thing, The Spotted Pig boasts a large fine wine list. The Spotted Pig is so influential worldwide that it started the bar/restaurant combination craze. Today The Spotted Pig and such bars around the world are called Gastropubs. The Spotted Pig and Gastropubs in general are known for being places where making a reservation is not necessary and you can pop in for a bite whenever.
You will find the Red Farm in New York City’s West Village. The restaurant is very proud-and rightfully so of its extra fresh produce and seafood. Especially popular and delicious are its famous shrimp dumplings and duck spring rolls. The original culinary creations by the Red Farm chefs are so beautiful and awesome that diners frequently take pictures of the food masterpieces served them. The restaurant also specializes in preparing for large groups and events with large private spaces to accommodate such things.
