3. Enjoy Some Wine and Swine

The Purple Pig

500 N Michigan Ave Chicago, IL, 60611

Get Directions

If you’re looking for a nibble and drink after the meeting you can’t go wrong with the Purple Pig. The slogan of this lively restaurant/wine bar is cheese, swine and wine. All three are taken very seriously and deliciously. Graze on small plates of artisanal cheeses, cured meats and milk braised pork shoulder or dive into the more adventurous dishes like pig’s tails cooked in balsamic vinegar. They also have an extensive but approachable list of wines by the glass.
Take a sneak peek at some of the dishes from the Cooking Channels Unique Eats.
