It was all pig farms in the early 1800's. At least that's the story I was told. Pork town ~ Ham burg, maybe it was a stretch. I have to polish up my clue game for the future.

Another Clue:

For those who haven't figured out the location of the restaurant, here's another clue:

It has one of the 10 biggest wine collections in the World!

Amazingly, the wine cellar has an MRI machine just to analyze the wine! That's pretty cool!
"The cellar is also home to a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance technology laboratory, which helps them analyze individual wines without the need to disrupt their aging or will flaw them from opening."

They offer tours of the cellar from time to time and they have a private dining room down there as well. I've been inside and it's absolutely impressive.

Another clue:

Well, we have given the puzzle people and the locals enough time to figure out the tag and get to it. For the rest of you, here's the article in the NYTimes:
