Well-liked Taiwanese restaurant Nancy Lee's Pig Heaven has found a new home, and it's only a block to the west, reports the Post. The restaurant, known for its celebrity clientele and many, many kitschy pig figurines, was kicked out of its 30 year home by a developer during the summer. But hopefully, once Lee and her little piglets settle in at 1420 3rd Avenue later this fall, they won't be going anywhere anytime soon. The landlord's family has owned the entire west blockfront for 20 years — plus, he grew up eating at Pig Heaven.
