Peckish Pig

623 Howard St., Evanston, IL 60202


Mellow brewpub teaming its beers with cocktails, wines and gastropub grub in a brick-walled space.

The menu is presided over by a silhouette of the peckish pig himself, armed with fork and knife like a cannibal, and divided into sections: The Plank, The Bowl, Meat, Poultry, Seafood, Vegetarian, On Bread, Sides and Desserts. That makes it easy to troll through the menu and hit something from every food group; much of this food is made for sharing, and prices are reasonable, so don’t worry too much about over ordering. Unique menu items include: Duck Confit Mac & Cheese, served with a Sunny-Side Up Egg, Flatbread with Arugula, Serrano Ham, Goat Cheese and Red Onion with a Fig Jam Glaze, Kimchi Potato Cakes with Plum Sauce, Lamb Burger with Cumin Fries, and Beer Big Mussels cooked in beer with onions and bacon just to name a few. Desserts are all made in house by Debbie and they are definitely calorie-worthy.
