    Order the burrata, pork shoulder, bone marrow smear, and the crispy pig ears with kale. Delicious.

    This joint is one of the 15 best places in Chicago to get butternut squash, a trending taste this week. They're also ranked as Chicago's 2nd best place for wine. We wouldn't object if you get both.

    Original cocktails. I liked the cin-cin. I hear that pork chops are good. The taramosalad is bad. Mostly cream of wheat, almost no roe. And they thought it was *my* problem because I come from Europe

    Bewildered, but not confused about the excitement over a hot topless restaurant on Michigan Avenue. And then I found out The Pig is about tapas. Ta-pas. Got it.

    You can barely taste the texture of pig's ear in the pigs ear dish, the bone marrow was insufficient for two pple despite my questions to the server, the braised pork shoulder was too salty. Overhyped

    They don't take reservations so put your name down, give them your cell and walk around. The bar is also lively, really fun, and first come first serve.

    Had potential but it was ok. Maybe I wasn't in the mood for this kind of food, or maybe this place isn't good for just 2 people. But even the deviled eggs were meh; elsewhere they're usually delicious

    Personally prefer Gilt Bar's bone marrow but Purple Pig's is nice too. The food is on the saltier side so watch out for that but overall I love their dishes.

    My favorite thing to do here is have the server bring you a dish or two to complement your meal. The menu is so extensive and it is nice to have some help while also getting a fun surprise.
