The Bourgeois Pig closes on East 7th Street with move to the West Village
That's it for The Bourgeois Pig on East Seventh Street. The wine-cheese bar closed after service on Saturday.
We spotted workers yesterday taking apart the Pig's exterior here between Avenue A and First Avenue.
As Eater previously reported, a rent hike was behind the 10-year-old bar's East Village closure.
However, there is a new Bourgeois Pig location now open at 127 MacDougal St.
This is the second business on this block to decamp to the West Village this month. Gingersnap's Organic closed its 3-year-old home at 130 E. Seventh St. for a move to West 10th Street.
