THE COMMITTED PIG
28 W. Park Place, Morristown
Hours: Brunch, Mon-Fri, 10 am–3 pm; Sat-Sun, 8 am–5 pm. Dinner, Mon—Wed, 5–9 pm; Thurs-Sat, 5–10 pm; Sun, 5–9 pm
Style: Exposed wood beams, a welcome mat of pennies at the door, mismatched chairs and a turquoise wall create an offbeat vibe at this chow-down destination off the Morristown Green.
Don’t Miss: Despite the name (and a Pork Roll section of the menu), burgers are the thing. Choices range from the Triple B (bleu cheese, bacon, balsamic reduction) to the Jalapeño Popper (cheddar jack, tempura jalapeños, cream cheese) to the Burgernut (American cheese and ketchup on a glazed donut). All come with choice of fries, waffle fries, sweet potato fries or side salad ($13-$19). Brunch options include savory egg dishes and Nutella-stuffed French toast. Sandwiches deserve a try—for example, the Fig-n-Brie, melted brie and fig preserves on sourdough bread, served with fries ($12). Ditto salads, like the Arugula Milanese: panko-crusted chicken breast, shaved parmesan, tomatoes, balsamic glaze on arugula ($13).
Heads Up: The Pig offers a bucket of ice for BYO spirits. For brunch, bring champagne and get a pitcher of fresh-squeezed OJ to make your own mimosas.
The Scoop: Desserts are not listed on the online menu, and they’re nearly hidden on the printed menu, but the Pig has an outstanding treat: Oreos dipped in red-velvet batter, deep-fried and served with sweetened cream-cheese dip. The Pig’s Manasquan location (168 Main St, 732-528-9400) has offered these for years, but it is Morristown’s new guilty pleasure.Click here to leave a comment
