About

The Bourgeois Pig is located in New York City, New York and offers cuisine that bridges the gap between traditional and innovative. Many fine dining staples are on the menu, but many have unique flavor profiles that will tease the palate. The Bourgeois Pig offers a number of cocktails, both bubbly and not, as well as various wines from which to choose. An excellent choice is the shandygaff, which consists of ginger beer, lime and withier.

The dinner menu at the Bourgeois Pig has appetizers and sample plates, for those dining alone or with friends. You can try some bruschetta that is far from ordinary, with options of brie, strawberry and mint or cheddar and Fuji apple. There is also an assortment of fondue, including traditional favorites like four cheese and less standard fare like mushroom royale fondue.

Our evening there was the last evening they were open. The staff was extremely nice, just wish that they had advertised this fact better as when we got there hardly anything on the menu was available anymore.

Come for the fondue, not the drinks. Beer & wine selection is decent; cocktails and punches are pretty bad. The fondue & fixings are wonderful and the meat/cheese plate is large and good quality for the price. Great ambiance and decor!!

Amazing cozy restaurant in the west village with outstanding cheese and meat plates for dinner. The decor of the place is very beautiful as well. Food was outstanding. A must visit if you are in the west village. Would recommend making a reservation as is somewhat of a small place. Will visit again for sure.

I have been looking for a good fondue place in the city for a long time and decided to try the bourgeois pig out the other night. The food was amazing - get the French onion soup fondue! Best fondue I have ever had! Also our server was so friendly and down to earth I almost felt like she was just a good friend. The only bad thing is that Apparently the place is closing in May because the owner is going vegan... Very dissapointing!

Ambiance and food are top notch. The seating is limited so if you are a large party make sure you request the table in the back. Also half price wine bottles on Mondays and Tuesdays, half price sangria on Wednesdays!

The two of us had a lovely, romantic dinner there. The mussels were some of the best we've had! And the fondue was excellent. The space isn't huge, and the tables are pretty close to one anther, so I could see it getting crowded. But the decor is really cool, and the whole experience was great.

I took my boyfriend there for this birthday and he was excited about the ambience of the space and cheese fondue. While overall the experience was great, the tables and chairs are a little cramped and the space isn't as great as the former location on 7th street. The crowd was also a bit older but it was also a Wednesday night so this may have contributed to this. I would recommend this place as a great wine and appetizer spot.

The new location is just way too small. The charm and ambiance are somewhat lost because too many people are crammed in such a narrow space. I love the idea of this place and the East 6th street spot felt magical but this one was just a miss.

the title says it all - the space is really cute for a date or an intimate gathering, but the menu is very limited and the fondue tastes and looks absent of cheese... Like it is mostly bechamel.

Of course we LOVED the gooey cheese followed by hot, melted chocolate, and all the yummy things used as vehicles for the cheese and chocolate... but the restaurant itself was also enjoyable. It's very small, so make a reservation and be prepared to practically cuddle up next to your neighbors. The ambience is fun with eclectic furniture and chandeliers and very dim lighting, so you feel a bit hidden as you stuff your face.

My sisters and I came here on a late Saturday evening and absolutely loved it. The place is very small, and can feel cramped, so I would go with more than 2-3 other people. The service was excellent- we had made a reservation but the party at our table was still finishing up when we got there, so the staff created a temporary table while we waited so we could get drinks and didn't have to stand (we then moved within ten minutes). We ordered the crab appetizer which was basically crab fondue and was delicious, and then ordered the mushroom fondue as a main. Absolutely loved them both!

I really liked the atmosphere and the service. Very cool plush chairs and red lighting inside and the service was nice and prompt. I also liked the variety and quality of dippers that came with the fondue, it wasn't just bread but also came with nice apples, pickles, broccoli and for some reason just 1 cauliflower. What let me down was the fondue itself, it just didn't taste like cheese, it was more like a thick cream sauce. I don't know if it is always this way or just a bad night, but I won't return to risk it. I need cheese not just cream.

Upon entering this little neighborhood gem, you feel as though you are a guest in someone's home. This cozy restaurant is an amazing find. Food is great, staff is very accommodating, and don't be surprised if you start conversation with the table next you! Wine/Beer only but it compliments the cheese well!
