The Bearded Pig Plans to Open in Union Square

Union Square appears to be headed straight for a new barbecue restaurant called The Bearded Pig. The barbecue catering company just tweeted "Looks like we are opening a brick and mortar in Union Square!" and says to expect a summer opening. The Bearded Pig is run by pitmaster and Florida native Michael Schmidt, who previously managed a barbecue restaurant in DC. According to his website, Schmidt "was fed up with the barbecue in his area and decided to start cooking himself." Consider the sauce-stained gauntlet thrown down.
