The pedigreed barbecue crew at Gowanus summer pop-up Pig Beach decided to gear up for the winter and recently opened Pig Beach Burger, a 1,900-square-foot indoor space serving favorites from the summer menu and a new selection of sandwiches and sides. It’s right beside the sprawling outdoor space at 460 Union St., near Bond Street, and it’s stocked with picnic tables, TV’s, and projects for games, movie nights, and other events.
Pig Beach’s biggest hits like the brisket and short rib blend burger and the pulled pork sandwich will be available at Pig Beach Burger. The baby back pork ribs also remain on the menu. Newer items include a Thai-inspired sausage banh mi, meatball heroes, pastrami on rye, and brisket chili. Drinks will get a seasonal twist. Besides the wine and craft beer on tap, Pig Beach Burger’s slinging a rum and hot chocolate cocktail, a take on a hot toddy with cinnamon syrup and creme de violet, and an apple cider and Prosecco drink.
The summer version of Pig Beach was regularly packed when the weather was warmer. Eater critic Robert Siestema found some of the food to be “top notch,” including the cheeseburger, Carolina-style pulled pork, and baby back pork ribs. Pig Beach Burger is open on Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Take a look at the menu below, and if you go, let us know what you think.
