I dined at the Purple Pig the first time on a sleet-filled early Sunday evening. The place was jammed mainly with young people and the atmosphere was happy and raucous. Cheery, but not conducive to a quiet conversation. The meal was highly unusual and flavorful. The first dish was a delicious kale salad that is highly recommended. The entree was a slow cooked, soft, delicious pork shoulder and potatoes. The servings were European sized--adequate but not overwhelming. Just right for a Sunday evening. Dessert was tiramisu that was fresh, firm, and not soggy--far above average. Cost for one with a glass of wine was $45. Five star food, but a little too loud for everyday dining. Worth a special trip and highly recommended.
