What to pair with pork? An apple martini ($8), according to Ken Pospiech, a co-owner of northwest Lake View’s new porcine palace, The Piggery (1625 W. Irving Park Rd.; 773-281-7447), which opened April 22nd: “We do an apple-cider glaze and we do our own applesauce, so the martini goes great with that.” Our photographer stopped by the 170-seat spot on Friday and caught a jovial Cubs crowd; expect an even jollier bunch when the outdoor patio opens around June 1st. Browse our photos below, then read more about The Piggery’s menu in Dish.
