Porco, The New Gem of NDG



It all started when I saw the newest and funniest "oink" tiled floor in the city, I knew I had to come and I knew it was going to be love at first sight.
Porco has opened in NDG and I couldn't be more excited to try the new menu and meet their lovely staff with my favorite mamas last week. This Italian eatery is filled with fantastic monochrome accents, from their tiled floor, matte chairs and communal tables, serving a deeeeelicious menu offering an authentic and high-quality cuisine to this hood.

Let me tell you, this place is so worth it. 


This casual spot is also a great family option, we LOVED seeing high chairs, children books and even a toys section in the restaurant. I'm so sure many mamas like us are looking for a place where you can sip a great cocktail and entertain your kiddos at the same time.  All the pretty little details were so well planned and put together, so you better hurry and plan your next night out here.

Now, we are clear food is why we are here for, and Porco knows how to rock this biz, for sure.

Here's what we tried in our mama's night out and honestly, we can't wait to go back and have it all over again.

Our Porco fest:
- Crostinis of herbed ricotta & marinated mushrooms, confit cherry tomatoes on cannellini bean puree, anchovy garlic butter with melted fontina cheese and sliced porchetta & fennel
 - A platter of Salumi & Fromaggi, including curated meats, homemade and imported cheeses
- Porco sandwich  .oh my god.
- Pork Milanese, personally one of my favorite of the night, served with bagel breadcrumbs, parmesan herbs, and pecorino cream sauce
- Bomboloni, a deep fried fresh doughnut with bacon sugar and caramel.

I guess you already called to reserve, right?
