The Purple Pig – Chicago Bites Podcast #160

Spring peas, faro and mint | The Purple Pig

This lovely Spring medley was a welcome choice on the menu.

Despite being located near the Mag Mile, The Purple Pig is a welcome neighborhood-y addition to the area. There’s a lot for meat lovers to enjoy on this menu, but those seeking lighter fare won’t be disappointed either. Join us as we review our recent visit to Chicago’s latest pig-lovin’ establishment.

    Been here MANY times 🙂 It is fantastic! Very strange to have a really nice dinner on Michigan Ave. Food, service, ambiance & value all 5 stars.
