Big Props for The Purple Pig!

We're not surprised one bit that Mag Mile sensation The Purple Pig made Bon Appétit's prestigious The 10 Best New Restaurants in America list, but we are surprised they're the only Chicago resto that made the cut (Hello, Balsan, Big Star, Gilt Bar?!).
Here's what they had to say about the bustling eatery best known for pork-focused dishes:
"This Mediterranean-inspired hot spot brings daring favorites like roasted bone marrow, pork-neck-bone rillettes, and pig's ear to the Magnificent Mile. Communal tables, small plates, long hours, and a huge L-shaped bar (with excellent beer and wine lists) make this one of Chicago's most delicious—and easygoing—foodie destinations."
