When the Pig Flies

Just thought I'd put in a few words for another really good place here in Forest Hills, The Flying Pig. It's another place I tried early on, wasn't blown away by because I thought its menu was too limited, and then just went back and absolutely loved. Between the enormously expanded menu, the really good food - everything we had we really liked - and the upbeat Friday night vibe when we went, The Flying Pig just rocketed its way to become one of my favorite places in FoHi.

The soup and reuben sandwich are off of the special St. Patrick's Day menu The Flying Pig had this weekend. Both were excellent. The roast chicken is from their regular menu.

    2. You just got lucky having great food when they opened. I dined with 3 other folks in their 2nd or 3rd week and everything on our plates were overcooked to the point of bricks. Very disappointing.

  3. That corned beef ruben sounds great! Too bad St. Patrick's is over. :)

  4. I'm glad to hear you had a great experience. I have tried 3 times and have found it lacking. There are way too many better options in town. I'm not cheap, but I can getter a better burger for less at Danny Brown's.

    As too Bantar, I agree with your observation. I wish they had the Pig's space. I too can't believe how packed that place is at night. It should be interesting to see how their business does when the table service is in full swing outside once the weather turns. When I see a crowd there I ask how long is the wait or is there a chance of throwing someone out soon? Unfortunately, I have the patience of a two year old in a wet diaper and if I cannot be seated quickly I'm out!
