Award Winner

Jimmy Bannos, Jr.

The Purple Pig, Chicago

In 2010 four Chicago chefs, including JBF Award winner Tony Mantuano, banded together to open what would become one of the city’s most popular spots: the Purple Pig. While leading its kitchen, Jimmy Bannos Jr. has earned a Rising Star Chef nomination, as well as a Best New Restaurant nod from Bon Appétit.
