Pork Belly Benedict
City State Diner and Bakery (address and info)
Anyone can quickly upgrade their breakfast game by swapping bacon with pork belly, but it takes a measured hand to achieve perfection. City State does this by properly cooking a slab of belly and slapping it on an English muffin with arugula and apricot jam followed by a dill hollandaise bath.
Pork Belly Mac & Cheese
Grassa (address and info)
It should be no surprise that the crew behind Lardo easily whips up a decadent rendition of bacon mac. It’s a classy Southern homage with handmade macaroni, barbecue pork belly, and jalapeños topped with cornbread crumbles.
