The Royal Pig Pub & Kitchen Capitalizes on Cool Trends
The interior of The Royal Pig Pub & Kitchen
The 233-seat eatery manages to pull off a clever formula with its atmosphere, mixing the entertainment value of a sports bar -- 30-plus high-definition televisions are all tuned to the game of the moment, and some four-seat booths even have a built-in private screen -- with tasteful décor. Lamps, hooks, mismatched frames, and bookshelves give the space a cozy feel. Shelves are lined with literature on economics, finance, and even a tale or two of fiction -- a subtle message to diners that if they're eating here, they're smart.
