    ABSOLUTELY DIVINE. I love the milk braised pork shoulder and the iris bun. The cherry kriek beer is great too.

    I had a great caramel chocolate churro porter! The food was incredible, the Cornish hen, 4 meats platter, and stuffed calamari were divine! One of my favorite eats of all time

    Excellent place for small plate sharing - pork blade steak and roasted broccoli (dressing: roasted garlic and anchovy vinaigrette) are must orders!

    Life changing. We had the Brussels sprouts, broccoli, braised pork shoulder, and the heavenly fried dough ball filled with cream and chocolate chips. YES!!!

    I had the marrow and it was wonderful. Go easy when sprinkling on the sea salt. I thought it was just fine without the salt. Just.spread the marrow on the bread, top with the cilantro....delish

    Great small plates but always a long wait. They call you on your phone when your tables ready so put your name in and head to a nearby bar.

    Yes, they do pig bits well. But they KILL it on their veg dishes.

    Diners enjoy their meals on red leather bar stools at long, communal tables, and the overhanging patio gives the impression of being suspended within the city amongst its skyscrapers. Read more

    The father-and-son Bannos duo's restaurant is a torch bearer for mediterranean small plates and charcuterie, and perhaps the best restaurant on the touristy Magnificent Mile. Be prepared for a wait. Read more

    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
