Purple Pig

Mediterranean in Near North & Navy Pier

The Pig's Magnificent Mile location, lively ambience and wide-ranging meat, cheese and veggie menu make it a crowd-pleaser. Milk-braised pork shoulder is the hamtastic specialty. Dishes are meant to be shared, and the long list of affordable vinos gets the good times rolling at communal tables both indoors and out. Alas, there are no reservations to help beat the crowds.
