Chosen as one of the 10 Best New Restaurants in America in our annual restaurant issue!
Eat here... Possibly the best food I've ever had.
To understand the allure of the Pig, you have to be comfortable enough that you chat up the strangers next to you and eventually steal their food.
Perfect order: olive oil-poached tuna, grilled octopus, milk-braised pork shoulder, olive oil gelato.
Arrive super-early or expect a seriously long wait at this small plates hot spot from a powerhouse team. - Inspector
When at The Purple Pig, don;t leave without tasting the 'Iris' dessert.
Have the Sicillian Iris for dessert... or breakfast, or lunch, or an appetizer, just GET IT!!!! Also, try the crispy pig's ears and try to tell my they don't taste like gourmet ballpark nachos on ster
Loved the razor clams, olive oil-poached tuna, pork shoulder, & bone marrow. You really can't go wrong.
The milk braised pork shoulder with mashed potatoes was amazing! Melts in your mouth.
Try the Chicken Thigh Kebabs! This is so good.
you must try the pig's tail!
Crispy pig ear with a fried egg 👍
The charred cauliflower fucking rules.
The milk braised pork shoulder is the best thing I've tried, but everything is pretty damn good.
Try the Roast bone marrow & parsley salad
You must get the deviled egg and the octopus (roasted corn w/Mushrooms and walnuts is great too)
All the desserts were awesome!
Try the Fried Pigs ear!
The quail is amazing! Deboned and stuffed with trahana and porcini stuffing glazed with pomegranate sauce.
Nice, after dinner
The Purple Pig is an absolutely amazing establishment - Chef Jimmy Bannos Jr. was incredibly friendly & helpful in guiding us through the menu. Avoid long wait times by scoping out a seat at the bar!
Pork Secreto! Love it!
Butternut Squash is fabulous!
Try the turkey leg. Delish.
The butternut squash is absolutely AMAZING!
The parmesan ice cream is amazing! Tastes a lot better than it sounds
Pork shoulder is to die for!
Milk braised pork shoulder was awesome! Also the pecorino noce was my favorite with the fig and grape spread.
Despite being a vegetarian, I can't rate this place high enough! Simply delectable food that will make you swoon.
Look for hum on the back bar, Chicago's Local Amaro. T
AMAZING! Loved the pork shoulder, the brussel sprouts, and the proscuitto apple smear. Oh, and the nutella panini for dessert! But be prepared for a long wait - they take no reservations, and we waite
Must have the Lardo!!!
The '07 Veedha from Portgual is an amazing red wine
Great atmosphere, sharing is caring. Make new friends chatting to the strangers on your table. Vegetarian options are plenty. Food come to table once ready so remember to leave room to try everything.
The salt cured Greek yogurt smear takes three days to make and is delicious.
This place is awesome. Read foursquare tips to find a few standouts (my fave: chicken thighs), then let your waiter pick the rest.
Love fried smashy potatoes + lamb blade+ italian sausage+ serano
Great shareable small plates.
Comida muito saborosa e uma carta de vinhos de respeito, com ótimas alternativas de países mediterrâneos. A parte de fora do restaurante é bem simpática ainda que o serviço seja meio atrapalhada.
Sentarse en la barra y dejarse recomendar!
