Perfection. With no reservations, we had a short wait on a busy Saturday evening. I loved that they had a nice area to wait and order drinks. We didn't wait nearly as long as we expected. The waitress was the perfect balance of friendly and unobtrusive. Our first plate came out SO fast, and every plate after that was perfect timing as we were finishing the last. Everytime we thought we found our favorite dish, the next was even better. My favorites: Salt-Roasted Beets with Whipped Goat Cheese + Pistachio Butter Flavors are perfect together! Milk-Braised Pork Shoulder with Mashed Potatoes + Crispy Lentils So tender and not a bit too fatty Ricotta Gnudi with Carmelized Brown Butter and Black Truffle Melts in your mouth! 4 plates and a dessert were just right for my boyfriend and me. They give you exactly the right serving, not too much, and not just a couple bites. I also really appreciated that this place had a casual feel. The food and service was 5 star, but felt comfortable and welcoming. They weren't trying to be fancy for the sake of being fancy.
What a treat! The tapas selections are so inviting and thoughtfully prepared.  The chefs have truly thought through your dining experience. Great atmosphere. Great staff.  You will not be disappointed!
Love the new location of the Purple Pig! Super cute place! They have a HUGE wine selection. Their menu is definitely super different! But very delicious! Happy hour is Monday-Friday with select wines for around 8$/glass, a 4$ beer, and a 12$ burger. Very basic burger for sure! Grilled Broccoli is the best thing ever! It had an anchovy sauce on it! Sounded so weird, but it was the best broccolis I have ever had! DEFINITELY get this! It was out of this world! My NUMBER ONE MUST GET! Chicken thigh kebabs were so flavorful and the chicken was moist and cooked to perfection. Milk Braised Pork Shoulder is a must! So tender and melt in your mouth good!! I heard that their pig ears are also the bomb, however the group I was with, didn't want to get that adventurous! This was a top recommendation though so maybe try it!
