The Iberian Pig hosted a mid-summer menu preview this afternoon, which also happens to be Chef Jay Swift’s debut at The Pig. Chef Jay, formerly of 4th & Swift and The Noble Fin, took over the helm in May. I’ve been in to The Pig before and enjoyed my experiences in the past, but this menu preview blew me away. The flavors were more nuanced and balanced than some of the previous dishes I’ve had there and are perfectly seasoned for summer.
The highlight of the tasting menu was definitely the scallop dish. The sweet corn purée and scallops seemed to be a match made in heaven but the fresh flavors of the succotash brought a nice crisp balance to the plate. But then there’s also the garbanzo beans. Oh! The croquetas! I’m going to stop while I’m ahead.
The new menu changes take effect tomorrow, Monday July 23rd. Make sure you get yourself in to try it out.
