Pig Heaven Returns a Block to the West; Michael White Finally Opens His LaGuardia Restaurant

A neighborhood staple returns, and Terminal C finally gets the Italian restaurant it's been waiting for.

After losing the lease on its original home in July, Nancy Lee's Pig Heaven has now opened in its new Upper East Side home. The neighborhood staple returned earlier this month with a very similar menu to the old one, though it's slightly more expensive. One change is that there is no longer suckling pig available.

In other FloFab news, Michael White has finally opened his airport restaurant Cotto in the Delta terminal at LaGuardia Airport, four years after the initial announcement. The restaurant is the largest in the terminal's food overhaul and sounds somewhat akin to the full service restaurants over at JFK. Expect antipasti, paninis, pasta, and some entrees like a grilled pork chop. The New York airports have been upping their game in recent years. Newark just announced a major transformation with new restaurants coming from Dan Kluger, Einat Admony, Mario Carbone, Amanda Cohen, and more.
