Brunch review: How well-endowed is the Hung Pig Sandwich at Village Marquee Grill?
When it comes to brunch, Tre Wilcox can do no wrong.
HIGHLAND PARK How hung is your pig? You’ve probably never taken the time to measure.
But the Hung Pig sandwich on the new brunch menu at Village Marquee Grill & Bar is a well-endowed monster of porky goodness. Filled with house-made sausage, barbecue pulled pork, thick-cut bacon, a fried egg, and horseradish mayo, it’s the perfect embodiment of brunch. It’s got a little breakfast, a little lunch, and a whole lot of sin. Just what we need on Sunday mornings.
But there’s plenty to love elsewhere on the revamped lineup from Executive Chef Tre Wilcox.
Check out the Huevos Rancheros sitting atop a corn masa sope with a duo of sauces, crema fresca, and refried beans. Or the shredded chicken chilaquiles, a great combo of savory chicken and spicy green chile mixed with creamy cheese and scrambled eggs.
Old favorites like fluffy, buttery biscuits, pork belly and waffles, and truly divine shrimp and grits are still available for any Marquee fans that fear change.
Yet no matter what you order, make sure to get a side of breakfast potatoes. There’s something genuinely magical about this take on the often-overlooked side dish.
And if a simple spud can wow us, just think what that says about the rest of the menu.
