Photo by Adriana GrantBest known as the man behind the now-defunct Culinary Communion cooking school, Gabriel Claycamp is offering Salumi a bit of porcine competition at the edge of the International District. Taking over the space formerly occupied by The Aristocrat’s Club (and more recently, serving as Skillet Street Food’s commissary), Claycamp opened a walk-up window on Monday at Fourth Avenue South and South Main Street, calling it The Swinery on Main. This is Claycamp’s second outpost, originally designed to stock his seven-week-old West Seattle Swinery. After earning a name for himself following repeated run-ins with health-department permitting issues, Claycamp seems to be working to build his business by the books.Like his West Seattle deli and sandwich shop, The Swinery on Main is all about feeding carnivorous appetites, with a focus on meats from local suppliers. Claycamp intends to keep it open seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and later on game nights, depending on what the neighborhood brings. Chef Brian O’Connor, manager of all food operations, said the menu will include such meaty items as bacon dogs, duck confit, and boil-and-bake, bacon-topped everything bagels. Breakfast items available for takeout include lard biscuits with rosemary-and-brown-sugar sausage and scrambled egg, and waffle dogs. “Linner” begins at 10 a.m. and includes brat burgers and beef-fat fries, plus veggie-friendly options like Cinderella pumpkin salad and a daily risotto. “The signage will be a bit ghetto in the beginning,” explained Claycamp two days before the opening, “with spray-painted pigs on the side of the building.” “We’re a block from Salumi,” Claycamp says with a grin. It’s clear that he’s hoping for a bit of spillover from the famous sandwich spot’s nonstop line. “That, and it’s a great place for lunch,” says O’Connor. “We’ll want to see what Armandino’s guys are doing.” In addition to a full-size kitchen, The Swinery on Main has the use of the building’s basement, including a red glitter-bedecked stage and what Claycamp referred to as stripper cages. “Maybe we’ll host a few burlesque Gypsy dinners,” Claycamp remarks. “It’s all legal.”
