PIG Suddenly, and Strangely, Closes in Less Than A Month

The Northern Liberties "pork emporium" closed in record time.

A month ago, news broke about the pork emporium, PIG, opening at 712 West Girard Avenue in Northern Liberties (once home to Union Taco, and soon after, EAT). With a menu of "Oink Oink Burgers" and "lolli-chops", chef Joseph Shilling received some immediate national recognition for his Chip Kelly sandwich after the Eagles's head coach was fired.

And then the Facebook pictures started:



Soon after, a status announcing its closure:

PIG IS CLOSED!
Thanks for the support.
PIG IS CLOSED!

The restaurant is officially closed as of January 16.
