Just like your waistline after all that porchetta, Hawthorne cart-turned-restaurant Lardo has expanded after only five months, taking over sweet digs where Westsiders can dig into the joint's huge beer and cocktail selection while housing signature burgers, cold fried chicken sandwiches, banh mi, and pork rind-laced fries without the labored breathing that comes with crossing the river.
Lardo is a cool low-key pork-centered sandwich shop, with a charming outdoor patio, a offers bunch of draft beer options as well. The star on the menu is the LPB Sandwich, which comes with lamb/pork/beef sausage, labneh, zaatar, cucumbers, fennel slaw, and pickled peppers. Whatever you order though, the fries here are an absolute must. The Lardo Fries, thin and crispy, topped with Parmesan and fried herbs, are a showstopper.
