The Notorious P.I.G. Comes to Phoenix
We apologize to anyone who read the headline and got excited that Savor Scottsdale was resurrecting their cleverly named pig roast and wine dinner, held in April 2009 at the now defunct Digestif. We're actually talking about The Notorious P.I.G., a new barbeque restaurant on Thunderbird Rd. in NoPo that our food-loving friends can't stop blabbing about.

"We were originally going to call the restaurant The Three Pigs, because there are three owners," co-owner Dave Martin tells New Times. When Martin added a sandwich to the menu called The Notorious P.I.G. in honor of his pooch, co-owners Marty Schouten and son Jim thought that the name would better suit the fun, informal feeling of the restaurant. We admit it's damn cute.

Two new outposts of The Notorious P.I.G. are already in the works -- one at Desert Ridge Marketplace, and another in the former R&J Diner building at 816 S. Stapley Dr. in Mesa that could be open in as little as three to four weeks.
