‘Tis the season for outdoor grilling. Well, it’s supposed to be, anyway, provided the seemingly schizophrenic springtime weather will cooperate. And, tonight, Cork Market fires up its new wood grill for the first in a monthly series of whole animal roasts, ranging from goat to lamb to salmon. This evening, chef Rob Weland is wood-roasting a suckling pig, which will be broken down in its entirety and served family-style with an array of sides, including mac ‘n’ cheese, baked local apples, and house-made sauerkraut. The price is $50 per person or $75 with wine pairings.

Coming up: Buy the “School Lunch Salad” at area Chop’t locations next week and $1 from each purchase will go help Harlem fifth-graders pay for their upcoming field trip to Washington and the White House Garden this summer. The special salad, created by New York chef Bill Telepan and priced at $8.49, features spicy cumin chicken, jalapeno, red onion, black beans, cilantro, and savoy cabbage with romaine lettuce and Sabroso dressing.
