(Michigan and Grand)
So everyone who’s everyone eats here (Purple Pig) cause it’s that’s good but it’s only an experience and only an experience with Colin Jones, a server in particular, no not the manager, the server, who’s got quite a tongue for good food not just at Purple Pig but the whereabouts in Chicago. He’s one of the few with very seasoned culinary experiences….
So be nice and be interesting or just be human towards Colin, because that is the real start of the dining relationship.
Say I’m Thirsty
Have him pick the wine for you… No need for $50-100 bottles, just tell him you want the reasonable priced ones that are outstanding to taste (it’s possible!)…
Say I’m Hungry
Have him pick what HE wants for you to try WITHOUT telling you what he picks till it actually comes to the table. Tell him to keep the dishes coming but him let him know two dishes prior to getting full.. Tell him about any food allergies and restrictions so you don’t end up at Northwestern Hospital.
Say You’re Done
Tell him to pick your dessert… But try not to miss the Affogato and the Sicilian Iris
