Tasty morsels about Chicago's food scene

Dressing the part at the Purple Pig, and belt buckle envy satisfied

| 1 Comment

Enterprising, that Jimmy Bannos. The Purple Pig, Bannos' latest project, hasn't even swung open its doors at 500 N. Michigan, but it wants you to know you too can dress like the honorary ragin' Cajun himself -- or the restaurant's line cooks. The restaurant will offer Purple Pig bandannas (a la the bandanna-wearing Bannos), t-shirts, water bottles and shirts worn by the kitchen staff.

While I wait to get our pig-emblazoned t-shirt, I should probably snap up one of those snazzy "ge" belt buckles worn by servers at graham elliot, 217 W. Huron. I eyed them on our first visit to the restaurant and asked about them but were told then that the buckles were not for sale.

Not so anymore, says the restaurant. The belt buckle can be yours (mine) for $40! Aapparently, the staff get comments "all the time" about them, a hostess says.

So there you go: another stocking stuffer down.

Can you post a pic of the buckle? Thanks ;-)
