Ravenous Pig Magical Dining Menu Preview 

I had the pleasure of previewing the Magical Dining Month menu at the Ravenous Pig, one of the many participating restaurants. 

Below is a preview of their featured menu, along with pictures I took and notes of my favorite plates. I also tried (not a part of the Magical Dining menu) one of their signature drinks called Orange Skies, made with vodka, clementine, passion fruit, vanilla, ginger tincture, and angostura. It was very refreshing and a perfect drink to go with dinner.
