Chelsea restaurants Trestle on Tenth and Rocket Pig from chef Ralf Kuettel will close after service this Saturday. The duo, next door to each other at 242 10th Ave. and 463 West 24th St., lasted 12 and six years respectively, inspiring neighborhood regulars and several media mentions touting Kuettel’s Swiss-inflected cooking and porky sandwiches.

Over the years, Trestle on Tenth was praised for its “satisfying” Swiss fare and “principled” wine list, earning one star in both the Times and New York magazine. The restaurant settled down into a neighborhood spot, and Kuettel became so known for his penchant for pork that six years in he opened Rocket Pig next door, a sandwich spot serving as a vehicle for more pig dishes. The signature sandwich stuffs smoked roasted pork, red onion jam, and mustard sauce in a toasted ciabatta roll.

A note on the website announcing the closure thanks diners, but does not point to a reason. The final night of service is on Saturday, May 26. Eater has reached out for more information.
