Due Lire in Lincoln Square will host “Festa Della Porchetta,” an Italian-style, fall pig roast, on Sunday, October 9 from 3-7 p.m. Executive Chef Kevin Abshire will prepare a whole pig, first stuffed with fennel, sage, garlic, salt and pepper, then slow-roasted for hours in Due Lire’s beautiful, backyard garden patio. The porchetta will be served with an apricot and truffle demi-glace, along with several savory side dishes (listed below) for $25 per person. Three beers from Andersonville’s Metropolitan Brewing Company will be available to pair with the pork, either as a flight ($10) or by the bottle ($4).
