Flying Pig is a new casual-dining restaurant at Eastwood’s new mall. “We thought, the name of the restaurant should sound like something that seems impossible and very unique, just like our dishes,” said executive chef Peter Ayson. Flying Pig combines regional American favorites with European cooking techniques. A must-try is the mouthwatering baby back ribs with a choice of sauces like Creole barbecue, French dijon honey and French espresso rub. A half or full serving comes with sidings of spinach with whipped potato and a Cajun ratatouille pasta.
