Fodor's Expert Review The Purple Pig
The Magnificient Mile is known for many things—stunning architecture, historical landmarks, world-class shopping—but dining isn't usually one of them. An anomaly on the strip that both locals and tourists enjoy is Mediterranean wine bar the Purple Pig. Adventurous eaters will revel in the offal-centric dishes like pork sweetbreads with fennel and apricots, and roasted bone marrow with herbs, but vegetarians also get excited about dishes like salt-roasted beets with whipped goat cheeses and pistachio vinaigrette. This is a wine bar, and it's definitely worth exploring the hefty international wine list, which includes many affordable wines by the glass.
