New on the year’s Super Bowl party platter: Roasted baby pig’s head by Craigie on Main

Craigie on Main’s Super Bowl centerpiece.

Craigie on Main suggests people skip the Cheetos this Super Bowl. The Main Street restaurant is offering a Pigs Head Package for Feb. 4 that feeds up to six people with some more traditional foods – a dozen chicken wings are included – but a unique centerpiece: half a “Slow-Roasted Milk-Fed Baby Pig’s Head.”

“Skip the seven-layer dip and microwaveable cheese,” the restaurant says in an enticing email. “We’re psyched to send you home with our famous cult favorite, complete with all the fixins’.”

The $75 package includes the wings and baby pig’s head; black beans, guacamole, red chile sauce and tortillas; cabbage slaw; and cornbread. That full rack of spice-crusted pork ribs mentioned in the email is actually $25, and the half-dozen pork sausages with sauerkraut and homemade mustards is another $25.

The restaurant will have a surprising number of baby pigs’ heads around; for pickup Feb. 4, the last time to reserve is Feb. 3.

Worth noting: Anna’s Taqueria also has a Super Bowl play. Along with a 12 percent catering discount for the day (in honor of Patriot No. 12, Tom Brady), the Mexican chain is pushing its Cubio creation, a “monstrous, 30-plus inch burrito fit for a crowd.”
