NY BarFly has an early assessment of the new Hog Pit location, and he thinks it doesn't yet have the same charm/crowd as the original: "Country music still blared from the jukebox, but the mood was nothing like the seedy roadhouse vibe that staked its claim on West 13th Street...We are rooting (oinking) for them. As it stands, we fear that the brand has lost its magic in the move. Much like the Meatpacking District, it seems a shell of its former self." [NY Barfly]
