Bloody Happening at the Spotted Pig New York

By: Finance Foodie

Last Wednesday, the Mister and I decided it time for a Date Night (with his business traveling and my hectic work schedule, having a real meal together was long overdue). Given the Mister's upcoming trip to London, we felt it was only fitting that we dine at The Spotted Pig, the West Village staple that serves up some of the best British and Italian fusion gastro-pub fare. Aware that this little joint gets packed to the gills every night and fearing a two hour wait for food, we decided to go around 6pm for dinner (ungodly early by New York City standards). Surprisingly, the place was still busy even at that hour, but we were luckily able to snag a prime seat in the corner booth. As expected, everything was well done, but the standout dishes of the night were the tender and flavorful Smoked Mackerel with Sweet Potato Mash and House Pancetta ($16) and the decadent but not cloyingly sweet banana toffee and chocolate Banofee Pie ($8). Armed again with my new Weryoo photo sharing community app, here is a photo journey of our night (Click on the captions to download my photos!)
