If proof is needed that the best restaurants are those that never stop evolving, The Black Pig (blackpigcle.com) is steadfast evidence.
After moving last year from his original home along the bustling main drag of Ohio City to the nearby corner of Bridge and W. 28th, chef and owner Michael Nowak redesigned the menu to better fit its more intimate new setting. Now, looking back on nearly a year in its new location, the time has come for additional changes in both menu and staff.
Working in tandem with Nowak is celebrated chef Jill Vedaa, who returned to the kitchen for the first time since the closing of Rockefeller’s last spring. Joining Jill is executive sous chef Jack Moore, an alum from the Greenhouse Tavern. The arrival of the talented pair signals a renewed focus on daily and seasonally inspired dishes.
