Just a quick note that Thistle Pig will open for lunch on May 30. I'll be posting the menus on the website (in it's own lovely section) on May 28!
Check that out! Soon, many of you--all of you--will be sitting on those stools and at that bar or at one of those tables. Things are really shaping up, and the soft opening (for Friends and Family) is nigh (in a bit over a week). That means that the full opening is not far behind, after they work out any kinks from the trial run. Look forward to a full website complete with menus and photos soon!
Some of the new menu items have been leaked to a mole, aka me. I have a few here (along with some fun facts in hi-tech hyperlinks), but first take a look a the new hue!
Thistle Pig will have its own garden out at Breezy Hill Farm, dedicated to supplying fresh herbs and veggies for the kitchen and table.
