This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef brings Staten Island hoagies to city folk, thanks to owner Will Gallagher and childhood friends Francis Garcia and Sal Basille.Bovine is so sublime, even the poem’s porcine protagonist reveled in a treat of roast beef. This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef brings Staten Island hoagies to city folk, thanks to owner Will Gallagher and childhood friends Francis Garcia and Sal Basille who co-own Artichoke. This Little Piggy... is a hole-in-the-wall with the look, feel, and radio sounds of a 40s-era canteen. The wee kitchen lacks a freezer and microwave, obliterating any doubt about the freshness of your sandwich. Enjoy a grinder your way or This Way, stacked on a roll with au jus and Cheez Whiz. Reverse positions and eat it That Way, on Italian bread with mozzarella. Don’t assume supremacy of That Way over This Way due to its lack of orange overlay. A good whiz—Kraft Cheez Whiz—costs more than mozzarella pound for pound. This Little Piggy goes through $1,500 of the stuff a month, coating mighty mounds of meat that would do Ron Swanson proud. Speaking of dropping dolla$$, over two grand covers the ceilings as part of an ongoing customer contributed collage. Ferry over to This Little Piggy... and put some beef where your mouth is. It'll make you shout “Wee, wee, wee!” all the way home.
