Fourth Time's The Charm

It took four attempts over 2 years, but I finally snagged a seat at the famed Spotted Pig pub in Greenwich village. Established in 2004, the Spotted Pig is New York City's first, and still most premier gastropub.  "Gastropub" is a pretentious foodie term used to describe bars that serve crowd-drawing foods as well as the standard beers, wines and spirits.  I'm not talking about Buffalo Wild Wings -- I'm talking about five consecutive Michelin stars.  Yum.

The Spotted Pig operates on a first come, first seated basis.  Grabbing a table at lunch shouldn't be too much of an issue, but if you don't arrive at 5:30p sharp for the diner rush, you will be waiting upwards of 2 hours for a seat in this diminutive establishment.  

The lunch menu is limited, but so is my patience when it comes to waiting forever to eat.  Drop in during the week for a burger & fries, then decide if the full menu is worth the wait.
