    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

    Pascal Jolivet Sancerre Rosé ($12). "Fresh red raspberries and strawberries, with just a hint of grape spice is a fantastic pairing with our hummus smear." says sommelier Liz Martinez. 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.

    Lamb chops and anything wagyu (autocorrect almost changed that to warty!)

    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.

    They have good food. But don't venture beyond what people rage about. Sit by the bat is fun

    Fantastic place to chill out in Chicago. Food is different then elsewhere( hot olives, fried beet root). Great selection of wine!

    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.

    Foodies will love this place. Get a plate to share with friends and get cozy with the people seated next to you. Everything was amazing, from pig tongue to octopus to wine selection. Highly recommend.

    Beets. Beets. And more beets. They are delicious. Sit all the way in the back to watch the organized chaos in the kitchen.

    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
