Openings and Closings

Sybarite Pig Opening Soon: Owner Daniel Naumko Talks Beef, Beer, and Why He Chose That Name

UPDATED 12:13 p.m. Tuesday, December 4: Naumko alerted us that because the tax collector's office system is down, the restaurant can't pull their permits this week. They've pushed the opening date to December 14.

Craft beer and food enthusiast Daniel Naumko will realize a long-held dream this Friday December 14 when he opens the doors to his west Boca restaurant Sybarite Pig. The project is a manifestation of his primary passions: Indulgent cuisine and well-made beer.

"The only time I'm happy is when I'm in the kitchen," Naumko said.

Sybarite Pig now occupies the plaza space previously filled by Wicked Awesome Snackbar, a cool space which closed this fall after the owner became overwhelmed by the long hours demanded in the operation of a restaurant. Naumko -- who has big very big plans for the space -- said he knows "it's going to be tough" but he's ready for the challenge.

"I could do it all day, every day," Naumko said. "This is a dream come true for me. I see it as a way of life."
