Do great restaurants get better with age? Like a fine wine? Not this one :-(

It has been an institution in Kingston for years, and for good reason, but standards can and do, - and have slipped.

Even the frites, ( which are really potato strings), which were legendary, are now in the 'good but not great' category. (He sighs with nostlgia).

The fish soup base, tomato, and one I love, is thin, for example, It's still very good, but no longer worth the detour off the 401.

Place is packed though, so maybe it's just me.

We ordered two lunches and split them. the first was the Chez Piggy Club sandwich with hand cut potato chips and the second was the GOOD-AH BURGER served with a terrific cabbage salad. This was the best tasting burger I've ever had. It was juicy, filling, but not fat or greasy.

We usually have our larger meal off a lunch menu. It saves a few dollars and you have time to "walk off" the larger meal before retiring fo the evening.

Adventurous dishes and great atmosphere, but too expensive for my taste. Great for lunch on the terrace.

A friend suggested we try Chez Piggy and gave me directions on how to find it. First off, thank goodness she gave us directions or we would never have found it. Once there we had no regrets at all. A cozy, warm and inviting restaurant the had us relaxing by the time we were seated. Dinner was fabulous, there wan't much talking happening while we ate, the food was so good all we could manage was a couple of grunts and thumbs up :)
You have to try Chez Piggy

You can count on Chez Piggy for a great meal in a fun location with great staff. You start out with wonderful bread from Pan Chancho....and then move to crisp, fresh salads with local ingredients, and then on to a wide variety of entrees. The specials are usually special, regardless the meal will be great. The only problem is....they have great desserts...and there is also wonderful ice cream just down the street in Kingston. You will have to choose!
