Porcinos, a new swine-focused comfort food eatery is debuting in Addison this week.
The restaurant at 5015 Belt Line Road is from the same group behind Edith’s in Mockingbird Station, and will feature a range of Southern-influenced foods. Porcinos will take over a space on the ground floor of the Centrum building, formerly home to sushi spot Chaucer’s. The interior of the space has undergone a significant revamp, and now offers an “upscale farmhouse” vibe, according to a press release.
Diners can look forward to a 360-degree inside/outside bar and a large covered patio overlooking Beltline Road with an additional side patio. The whole redesign is accented with cedar and pine plank walls, bronze metal, and fresh herbs and greenery. The restaurant will even have its very own indoor trees, “growing” out of a large communal seating booth.
Chef Damian Edmos, formerly of Princi Italia, will be heading up the pork-heavy program including baby back ribs and rolled pork roast paired with grits. “Porcino” translates literally to “pork” in Italian and reflects the ethos of the restaurant where whole hogs will be used. Porcino has its own rotisserie for slow-roasting meat and poultry, and the pork sausage will be made in house.
In addition to meat-heavy dishes, Porcinos will serve breakfast all day, local beers on draft, and fresh-juiced organic fruits and vegetables in the cocktails. Check out Porcinos’ menus below for even more details on the forthcoming offerings.
Porcinos launches its comfort classics in Addison on Thursday, April 12. The restaurant will be open Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday until 12 a.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
