Cheese, Swine & Wine

One of my best friends from college, MCG, was in Chicago on Monday on a business trip, and it was SO fun to catch up over dinner at The Purple Pig. I'd heard about this place a few months ago, and have been dying to try their Mediterranean small plates ever since.

Though our waitress was a little annoying and overbearing with the wine list (clearly she had been to sommelier school or something because she was wayyy too into it), the dinner was awesome. We ordered the Mortadella, Balsamico & Pistachio and the Eggplant Caponata with Goat Cheese smears with crostini, Fried Manchego with Membrillo Vinaigrette and the Corn and Tomato Salad with Pesto. It was all delish!

I'm excited to go back to the Pig and try the Milk Braised Pork Shoulder with Mashed Potatoes (umm yum?), and the Braised Baby Artichokes with Fingerling Potatoes, Asiago & Salami Toscana (wowsa!).
