Southern meets foodie at Handsome Hog

March 13, 2023

Handsome Hog is a contemporary Southern restaurant owned by Iron Chef winner and Top Chef contestant Justin Sutherland. Although he originally trained in French cuisine, Sutherland returned to his Southern roots when opening his first restaurant, the Handsome Hog.

It features a pork-centric menu with classic ingredients from the South. He uses his professional experience to transform traditional dishes like sliders, hush puppies, and poutine into elevated cuisine. Southern hush puppies are made of cornmeal-based batter in the shape of balls that are deep-fried and are served as a side dish accompanying seafood.

It features a pork-centric menu with classic ingredients from the South.

All menu items are on the pricier side; an appetizer with three hush puppies was $9 and the sausage gravy poutine was $11.

The walls are covered in pig-themed images and fresh flowers are placed on each table. Considering the interior decorations and menu items, you are paying more for the experience rather than a simple meal.
