From Aaron & Roddy Browning...
"The Flying Pig Pub & Kitchen was a dream of ours for many years. We had a few concepts that just couldn't seem to spring into action. The name "Flying Pig" came about by the frustration of trying to start a restaurant business. We always said we would have a restaurant when pigs flew... hence Flying Pig Pub & Kitchen. Aaron and I have worked in restaurants since our mid teens, in front of the house and cooking in the back of the house. We have been focused in fine dining the last 15 years. We wanted to have a fresh approach, not only with actual fresh food but a new approach to daily dining. The Gastropub is just that. A combination of a pub and restaurant-driven food. This is where our chef Mario Moser came in. A graduate of the San Diego Culinary Institute, Mario worked with chef Jason Knib of Nine Ten in La Jolla. Together with our fine dining experience and a deep-rooted passion for good food the Flying Pig was born. We trust you will enjoy our craft driven environment as well as our food."
