Porcinos, brought to us by the owners of Edith’s in Mockingbird Station, is now open in Addison in the Spectrum Center space previously occupied by Chaucer’s (5015 Belt Line Road).

Veteran Executive Chef Damian Edmos, who was most recently at Princi Italia, will be running the kitchen, turning out classic comfort food with Southern influence.

Porcino is Latin word for swine, and pork will appear in numerous menu items including their signature baby back ribs, house made sausage, and irresistible rolled pork roast stuffed with lemon and herbs and paired with grits.

The location features a 360-degree inside/outside bar that serves the front patio and dining room, two patios, one covered overlooking Belt Line, and another that wraps around the side with crushed granite and an outside bar. The overall design evokes an elegant farmhouse, with herbs and greenery complementing cedar and pine plank walls with bronze metal accents.

Porcinos is open for lunch and dinner (with breakfast served all-day). A separate weekend brunch menu on both Saturday and Sunday will offer organic prosecco mimosas and an all-organic pigskin bloody mary drink.
