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.
