In May, the EatWell group opened the Pig (3115 14th St. NW), truly a pork-lovers dream. In most dishes, pork is featured in a subtle manner that enhances the dishes rather than being a main focus. Keeping with the small plate trend, plates at the Pig should be ordered with the intent to share, giving you the opportunity to try dishes in both the more and less pig varieties. Meat-free meals are also available and quite tasty. Additionally, the Pig will begin serving brunch starting June 30th on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am – 3pm.
Dining and Dating District Style is a series focusing on dating from the viewpoint of the plate.

For this series’ inaugural restaurant review, I visited the restaurant that introduced the Spanish tapas concept to DC: Jaleo.
