The Purple Pig

Mediterranean | River North

"Bring an empty stomach" and "adventurous" taste buds to this "high-energy" Mag Mile gastropub where Jimmy Bannos Jr.'s "interesting" Mediterranean menu features some of the "most delicious", "addictive" small plates around ("must-try" pig ears, "decadent" bone marrow); communal seats "may not be for everyone" and a no-reservations policy means waits can be "long", but fans swear it "delivers every time."
