In a touristy location next to the Copley Place mall, the Salty Pig is a welcome surprise. The specialty is house-cured pork, aka “salty pig parts.” You order from a selection of meats, pâtés, and sausages, choose one or more of the excellent cheeses and condiments, and wait while the kitchen assembles your charcuterie “board.” If that doesn’t appeal, the salads, sandwiches, and pizzas are terrific. This is a good place for foodies eating with less adventurous diners, parents with kids, and even carnivores with vegetarians. The dining room is noisy in the evening; in fine weather, you can sit on the patio.
