Ravi DeRossi's fondue-obsessed restaurant The Bourgeois Pig is being forced to relocate because of a rent hike. The original location, which has been a fixture of the East Village for 10 years, will close when its lease runs out in February. But the forward-thinking DeRossi team has already found a replacement in the West Village, and is planning to open it a week from today. The new spot will have a different menu, which includes pumpkin spice fondue made with Emmental and roasted vegetables and baguettes for dipping, plus a s'mores fondue option. And so, for a short time, there will once again be two Bourgeois Pigs in New York 127 MacDougal Street, West Village
Forced Out by a Rent Hike, the Bourgeois Pig Will Pack Up Its Fondues and Move to the West Village
The original closes in February, but the new one opens next week.
