Occasionally, new restaurants are talked about to the point that they cannot be ignored, and such was the case with Porcellino’s Craft Butcher, the latest venture from the folks that own Andrew Michael’s Italian Kitchen and Hog & Hominy. I had assumed that Porcellino’s would be just a butcher shop with perhaps some sandwiches for lunch, but I forgot the fact that these owners always have a unique and unusual twist to their restaurants. Porcellino’s, in addition to the butcher shop and sandwiches, has a full coffee bar, offering Memphis’ first cortados, and also serves breakfast, including dutch pancakes and a breakfast sandwich that changes daily. It is the latter that keeps me enthusiastically coming back to Porcellino’s. It’s nothing fancy or complex, really, just a freshly-baked buttermilk biscuit with a scrambled egg, cheese and perhaps city ham, or maybe freshly-made sausage, whatever is available for the day. But it is a thing of beauty, big enough to satisfy, and full of flavor. The gourmet coffees complement it well, and the restaurant’s ambiance is bright and cheerful. Porcellino’s serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, but some words of caution are in order. Breakfast and lunch are served until 2 PM, when food service stops, and only coffees and certain pastries are available. Food service from the dinner menu only resumes at 5 PM until they close at 10 PM.
