Piglet Wine Bar
Enrico Fantasia, co-owner with Thibaud Harang of Piglet, is also a wine importer. Each of his wines tells a story – of a place, a person, a passion, a philosophy. 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 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 mostly natural wines, and they are superlative.
