Life is full of firsts. First steps, first words, first whole-roasted animal for dinner. Haven’t done that last one yet? Then pull together 10 or 15 of your most meat-loving friends and head to Frontier, where you can indulge in this West Town restaurant’s truly unique whole-animal service. When you order in advance, you can get an entire pig, goat, lamb, or boar straight from the farm, roasted just for you, and delivered to your table intact. It even comes complete with your own butcher to help you carve it up properly. The other diners will watch you with jealousy in their eyes as you team up to demolish the succulent beast, leaving nothing but a platter of bones. And with a whole animal at your disposal, you needn’t stop at the main cuts. Feel free to sample the brains, ears, or even heart, if only to embrace the whole nose-to-tail ethos. Your vegetarian friends don’t need to sit out the adventure, as the animal is served with sides of heavenly, creamy five-cheese mac ‘n’ cheese, johnny cakes, succotash, and, of course salad, because we all still need to eat our vegetables.
