The Purple Pig

500 N Michigan Ave. chicago


See Website

At this crowded spot on the Magnificent Mile, diners are welcomed by the following words: “Cheese, Swine & Wine.” With a menu light on green items and teeming with adventurous plates (crunchy pig’s ear, anyone?), the tag line is fitting. The meaty delicacies attract nose-to-tail fanatics, but also young couples, groups of friends and post-shopping crowds who happily lunch at the communal tables. Sadly, The Purple Pig doesn’t accept reservations, and wait times can stretch beyond two hours.
