The Tipsy Boar In Hollywood: A First Look

In the gastropub world, a porky nod in the title tends to elicit feelings of excitement: The Ravenous Pig in Orlando, The Purple Pig in Chicago, Noble Pig Sandwiches in Austin, you get the picture. Hollywood just received it's newest porcine-inspired gastropub: The Tipsy Boar.

The new spot, which opened a week ago, is the creation of owner Fulvio Sardelli, of Sardelli Italian Steakhouse, Vino, Fuvlio's 1900, and more. Clean Plate Charlie caught up with Sardelli to find out more about his newest and most casual spot.

The goal of the Tipsy Boar is to serve as the neighborhood bar. According to Sardelli, "I'm just looking for a place I can go nibble on something, have a beer, watch the game, and have another beer."

Since opening last week, the spot has been focusing on ironing out the kinks: sorting out the menu, training staff, seeing what people like and order. They have only been open during nights, but are hoping to start serving lunch on Monday. The goal is to open seven days a week -- including Sunday brunch -- from 11:30 to 2 a.m.

Like most restaurants in Hollywood, the food at Tipsy Boar serves mediocre food gives bad service. This is especially true of Mr. Sardelli's establishments. The Tipsy Boar is to the gastropub as WalMart is to high-end shopping. Unfortunately anyone can hang out a sign and call themselves a gastropub and maybe one day the Tipsy Boar will actually put up a sign, or maybe not. The worst part of the Tipsy Boar is this. As we are walking up to dine what do we see in the alley behind but the Sysco truck. For anyone not familiar with Sysco, they are the WalMart of the food industry. They sell cheap and pre-packaged food with absolutely no freshness whatsoever. The chef at the Boar is not exactly trolling farmers markets for the days menus.
