Il Buco’s annual Sagra del Maiale (festival of the pig) is a neighborhood tradition commemorating the Autumn Equinox, when day and night are of equal length, along with our anniversary. Chef Joel Hough and staff rise before the sun and start a bonfire burning right on Bond Street, where they lovingly slow-roast a 200 lb Heritage Ossabaw Pig. Neighbors, friends and family alike line up early for a buffet of all things pig, including porchetta panini, apple pork sausages and apple ricotta fritters. This feast inevitably leaves the crowd with only one regret...that it only happens once a year!
