When I first walked up to the Bourgeois Pig, there was a way-too-hip guy standing on the stoop smoking and generally looking like a typical East Village hipster. Imagine my surprise when he struck up conversation. It took me a couple of minutes to realize that he was the host. 🙂 Bourgeois Pig is cozy and filled with comfortable armchairs and chintz sofas and dark, lounge lighting. The staff is absolutely delightful and happy to offer recommendations. Share some fondue (savory and sweet) and some champagne punch and you’ll leave warm and happy.
