From Swine to the Slammer


Diner’s Journal reports that Bev Eggleston, the purveyor of all-star swine to restaurants including Momofuku, Gramercy Tavern and Savoy, spent the night of July 30 in the Tombs. Eggleston, who has pioneered the humane treatment and slaughter of animals through his Virginia-based EcoFriendly Foods, was arrested after making a wrong turn onto Central Park West, which was further compounded when a license check revealed a past citation for driving with a suspended license. Fortunately, Eggleston’s wife, Janelle, was able to complete the deliveries, which comprised some $20,000 worth of pork products; Eggleston was released the next day.
