The Week in Ideas goes whole hog with Brooklyn restaurant Northeast Kingdom. We head down to Florida to check in on some racist burritos. And we just can’t help ourselves: one more Chick-Fil-A item.
Idea #1: Go whole hog. To kick off its new whole-pig, in-kitchen butchering, Brooklyn restaurant Northeast Kingdom is holding a 23-course, $130-per-plate dinner made from a single 220-pound pig named King Arthur.
Idea #2: Rename your racist burritos. After getting slammed on Facebook, Lola's Burrito Joint in Jacksonville, Florida, had a good idea to rename its “Wetback Willie” burrito to “Wet Willie.”
Idea #3: Have some fun at Chick-Fil-A’s expense. Beaver’s restaurant in Houston launches the Chick on Chick sandwich LTO: “Two loving chicken breasts married on toasty buns with a honey mustard witness and joined in celebration with tolerant fries,” read the menu board.
