If you’re a foodie — some Eat: Los Angeles readers might relate — it’s not just a meal, it’s a lifestyle — the obscure, sustainable, produce sources, the celebrity chefs, the reality show meltdowns, the food porn photos.
New York food culture insiders Leila Cohan-Miccio (a former editor at New York Magazine-owned Grub Street food blog) and Lauren Conlin Adams (a “front-of-house” veteran of NY “it” restaurants like Balthazar) skewer all of the above and more in Pig: The Restaurant.
Conceived over a “long, wine-fueled talk” at an oyster bar by writer Cohan-Miccio and performer Adams , the one-woman show, directed by Caitlin Bitzegaio, invites guests to the “opening party” for “Brooklyn’s porkiest new restaurant”.
Pig: the Restaurant debuted last fall at Upright Citizens Brigade New York, where Cohan-Miccio, Adams, and Bitzegaio write, perform, and teach, so expect Grade A comedy chops as well as Michelin-starred gastronomy references . The carnivore-themed comedy is playing two nights only at Upright Citizens Brigade in Hollywood.
Bacon-infused bourbon, anyone?
