Whiskey Caramel Waffles at The Naked Pig and Santa Rosa

Whiskey Caramel Waffles at The Naked Pig and Santa Rosa

BiteClub got a first bite of The Naked Pig’s opening menu, and was an unabashed oinker in polishing just about everything on the plate.

There are just three tables inside (plus several more outside), making the experience quite intimate (you can also get take out).

Here’s what to get: Tip-top billing goes to the cheddar, chive and ham savory bread pudding ($12) a super-collider smash-up of flavors worthy of a Nobel prize ($12). We’re also huge fans of the green onion biscuit with honey, poached eggs, perfectly cooked bacon and tartly-dressed salad ($13).

Artisanal whisky caramel waffles ($11) are fluffy and moist with a boozy punch ($11). Lunch sandwiches are takes on lunchbox favorites like meatloaf ($13)and egg salad ($11), but with gourmet twists like Raymond bakery ciabatta, pastured eggs and homemade pickles and ketchup.

We won’t deny a bit of sticker shock on a few items, but foodists will appreciate owner Jason and Dalia’s curated list of purveyors that include small sustainable farmers and bakers. We’re always willing to pay a little more to support our friends.

Open 8a.m. to 3p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, 435 Santa Rosa Ave., Santa Rosa.
