The restaurant will be helmed by Top Chef alum Kenny Gilbert, who is working in the kitchen at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar with fellow Bravo alumni Jeff McInnis.
Gilbert's current title is executive chef at 50 Eggs, which is the creative team behind both Yardbird and Swine.
Gilbert is working on the menu, which will focus on pork items, showcasing heritage-breed hogs and fresh local ingredients.
Though the menu is still in the planning stages, look out for house-made charcuterie, artisanal sausage, and a "whole hog" concept. There is talk that both restaurants will share some menu items, such as desserts.
Like it's poultry-inspired sister, Swine will feature culinary-driven cocktails, a large selection of seasonal craft beers, an extensive bourbon program, and, of course, wine for the swine.
Chef Gilbert has nearly 20 years of professional experience, and has served as executive chef at The Grill at The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island, The Lodge at Sea Island, and The Inn at Lost Creek in Telluride.
