Matt Janke—the namesake of Matt’s in the Market, with which he’s no longer involved—runs this seasonal Northwest restaurant on the Harbor Steps. The name’s Chinook for “pig,” and along with house-made sausage and porchetta, there’s grilled octopus, rabbit cavatelli, and more. Happy hour is a good deal, and at lunch, the tuna melt is outstanding.
