The New Orleans culinary stylings of restaurant Natchez goes outside, as they hold a pig roast with Patio Bar on Second Avenue, aka the First Annual "Pig Roast on the Patio." Chef Shawn Knight will be serving Roasted Suckling Pig, Andouille Sausage, Pulled Pork Sliders, and more. There's no cover and the food is pay-as-you-go, with dishes starting at $5. Plus, there's live country music.

The Pig Roast on the Patio goes from 4PM to 11PM this Sunday, July 25th, at Natchez Restaurant and Patio Bar (31 Second Avenue, between 1st & 2nd Street). And if you don't make it to Natchez, you should - think yummy Cajun cooking, without the crazy, drunken spring break kids (here's NY magazine's review).
