Piglet Wine Bar
Enrico Fantasia, co-owner of Piglet Wine Bar with Thibaud Harang, is also a wine importer. His wines are distinguished by being so singular that they give us not just a delicious libation, but also the equivalent of a message in a bottle: each of the wines M. Fantasia offers has a story – of a place, a person, a passion, a philosophy. You get a drink, of course, but you also get so much more.
And the same is true of Piglet, a little space on Cow’s Lane in Temple Bar that doesn’t appear to offer much – a bar, some tables, wines, a short menu, a kitchen the size of a cupboard. But, from this unprepossessing setting, Fantasia and Harang bring forth the message in the bottle: Piglet is a place where you will eat – and drink – supremely well. Don’t just regard the space, soak up the message of good food: octopus with chickpeas and chorizo; rabbit with polenta; the signature steak tartare; pork cheeks with cannellini beans; a fine cote de boeuf. The wines are almost all natural wines, and they are superlative. Piglet’s message is a simple one: here is a place to eat and drink in the most civilised way.
