In the wake of its two-year anniversary, Swine Southern Table & Bar – the brainchild of restaurateur John Kunkel,  founder of 50 Eggs, Inc., which also owns/operates Yardbird Southern Table & Bar and Khong River House –  and Executive Chef/Partner Clayton Miller, are rolling out new business crowd friendly lunch and dinner menus with lighter items

The new locally-sourced and lighter menu items includes Heritage Breed Pig, raised in Miami at Mary’s Ranch.  The shared plate or hearty dinner-for-one, a helping of Heritage ($42) features three unique cuts of hog, each prepared in a different manner based on the selection available that day : grilled chops, roasted leg and a juicy cut of pork belly.  The plate of three comes complete with local vegetable "escabeche" and roasted pork sauce.  Backyard BBQ Chicken is reinterpreted Southern-style ($26) and served with roasted marble potatoes and charred okra.  North Carolina Sunburst Trout ($31) is simply grilled and served with Brussels sprouts slaw and lemon cream-infused Carolina gold rice, giving it a risotto-like consistency that is lick-the-plate good.  Another standout selection from the sea is the new Atlantic Swordfish ($30), which is marinated in buttermilk, grilled and served atop a ragout of South Carolina Sea Island red peas, Romanesco florets and dressed with a chicken jus.  Additional Small Plates by sea include Wood-Fired & Grilled Octopus with peanut hummus and sweet peppers ($16) and East Coast Oysters "On the Rocks" ($18) with house-made Swine hot sauce and watermelon mignonette.

For lunch, there’s the signature burger – the Meat + Three ($18), with 12-Hour Slow Smoked Pork ShoulderLow & Slow Ribs or 14-Hour Smoked Brisket – plus two Fixins and cornbread. Grilled Shrimp Tacos ($16) served in house-made tortillas with chimichurri, roasted tomato and charred corn; Cast Iron Skillet Seared Atlantic Salmon ($18) with zucchini and red bell pepper succotash, charred bell pepper purée and shaved cucumber; the "BLT" ($14) made with house-crafted pork brisket pastrami, kale, fried green tomato and the restaurant’s special sauce; "Nashville Hot" Fried Chicken Sandwich with bread & butter pickles, Duke’s mayo, lettuce and tomato, served on a big buttermilk biscuit ($12); Swine now offers four lunchtime salad options ($13-$14) such as Roasted Mixed Beets ($13) dressed with pomegranate seeds, Great Hill Blue cheese, smoked yogurt, pea shoots and cornbread crumbs;  and diners can add their choice of protein including wood grilled Florida shrimp (+$8), salmon (+$8), shredded crispy pork(+$5), pulled pork (+$6) or burnt ends (+$8).
