A decades-old Salem restaurant that closed down in mid-September is not, in fact, gone for good. In a Pig’s Eye has reopened under the auspices of the former owner of Howling Wolf Taqueria, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. Pat Schultz posted a notice about the development on the restaurant’s Facebook page on October 1, and the restaurant reopened on Monday this week.
In a Pig’s Eye will stay open through the end of December, when it will close temporarily for renovations, according to the post. It continued:
The Pig will always be a neighborhood pub and will always feature music. The food will be great and the staff professional and welcoming. The changes are solely intended to improve the overall quality of the establishment.
We had a lot of success at The Howling Wolf Taqueria, which I started in 2010, because we constantly focused on quality, staff professionalism, and building our business around Salem residents and regulars. Worked then, should work again. Regardless, it’s the only way I know how to do it.
The staff has stayed on at the restaurant, and the menu will remain the same "but with significant improvements," Schultz wrote.
