Honey Pig: Searching For An Opening Date

Anyone have a concrete date for when pork belly hits the grill at Honey Pig in Ellicott City?

Several comments and the Honey Pig Annandale's Yelp page say it will open on March 19, 2010.  Stephen C saw a sign that says Ellicott City will open April 1, he said in a comment today with a link to the sign.  This might be the difference between a "soft" opening and an official date.  I'm still hoping for next week.

(Update: Looks like Honey Pig is opening on April 1.  Check out this later post.)

Brandon and I both aren't exactly sure why we're so excited for Honey Pig since there are tons of Korean barbecue available on Rte 40.  But we are!

the pork is just THAT good. and it's also pretty cheap relative to the other korean bbq.
get ready to smell like the grille!

And I think part of the excitement is realizing that there are other lovers of pork belly out there. It's like revealing a secret you haven't shared with just anyone.

I was in the area today so I drove by to see how things looked. There was still all the paperwork in the windows, so while I'm not sure what happens at each stage it does seem unlikely that it would be opening tomorrow. It does have a "Grand Opening" banner up so that's hopefully a good sign?

I called their 410-696-2426 number at 12:10 pm, but it rang and rang for 2 minutes before I hung up. So based on that and Brandon's note above, it looks like they're not open yet. :-(
