Despite its trendy popularity, this restaurant is not to be missed. The Mediterranean style small plates, impressive wine and beer list, and easy-going vibe keep this gastro pub hopping.
The Purple Pig was not stuffy. Food was great and eclectic.
The concierge recommended this Michigan Ave spot for a special but casual meal. I was concerned that it might be touristy, given the location, and was pleasantly surprised. The menu is large and varied, emphasizing Mediterranean-style small plates. This is also a fantastic spot for adventurous eaters who appreciate a strong wine list. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable, atmosphere is hopping.
So tasty! A great 'small plates' resto on the Mile.
Go there on off hours to avoid the crowd...and then enjoy. Everything is fantastic, although of course the pig is the biggest attraction.
