Porcinos, which translated to “swine” in Italian, will open in Addison on April 12. The restaurant is from the team behind Edith’s French Bistro in Mockingbird Station and executive chef Damian Edmos, most recently at Princi Italia, is running the kitchen.
According to the release:
“Porcinos will be a place to gather with friends and enjoy classic comfort cooking with Southern influences, in an upscale farmhouse atmosphere. Porcino is an Italian word that refers to swine, and pork will appear on in numerous menu items including their signature baby back ribs and irresistible rolled pork roast stuffed with lemon and herbs and paired with grits.
But the name Porcinos is also chosen for its symbolic value: hogs are an animal where every part gets used, from snout to tail, an approach that the restaurant will follow, right down to making their own sausage in-house. Porcinos will boast a rotisserie on which they’ll slow-roast meats and fowl for the chicken and porchetta dishes.”
The restaurant will open in the old Chaucer’s space at 5015 Beltline Rd. Hours are Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m., Friday from 11 a.m. until midnight, Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2 a.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m.
