The Pandering Pig feels like something you’d find at a bed and breakfast upstate. It’s a tiny French spot with exposed brick walls covered in old photographs, and when you stop by, you’ll probably see one of the owners walking around, opening bottles of wine and chatting with various customers. So if you need a charming spot where you can talk to a nice stranger and eat a big plate of coq au vin, The Pandering Pig is an excellent choice. Bring a date, or stop by with your family for a nice meal during which you probably won’t argue.
