This Week's Dish: Copper Pig Begins Dinner Service in Southampton
Copper Pig began dinner service last week in the increasingly popular Macklind Business District of the Southampton neighborhood. Owner Nhat Nguyen brings an Asian-meets-Southern menu with offerings ranging from a cheesesteak made of bulgogi beef, kimchi and cheddar to a fried, whole red snapper served with soffrito rice, maduros, chili-tamarind sauce and cilantro.
The kids even have a special menu that adults would enjoy like the bulgogi grilled cheese. There’s plenty of local influence on and off the menu as well with Clementine’s Naughty and Nice Ice creams on the dessert menu. Local 3-D design studio Collab even teamed up with South City’s Urban Matter to create one-of-a-kind lighting for the space. Copper Pig is only serving dinner for now, but will be open for lunch and brunch within the next few weeks. 4611 Macklind Avenue, Southampton, 314.499.7166
Artisan sausages and hand-cut fries will be on the next food truck to roll through town. Frankly Sausages will be run by chef Bill Cawthon and his wife Jamie. Cawthon has returned to his St. Louis roots after spending time working in the entertainment food industries of New York and L.A. for notable stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Paul McCartney.
