Chicago is widely known for their deep dish pizza, but I seem to keep hunting down the finest thin crust the city has to offer. Located in Logan Square, Reno is a cash-only bar and restaurant with one of my…Read more
A few weeks ago I was in the medical district to finish out my workday and figured I'd be eating another Starbucks $8 lunch since I thought I wouldn't have a chance to grab anything else on the way over…Read more
What better thing to do on a Friday night than get pizza with your besties? When my intern texted me saying "get to Pequod's at 5:30," he knew I was an easy sell. Pequod's is widely considered a Chicago institution, and their menu features both deep dish pan-style as well as thin crust pizza (my favorite!) They originated in the suburbs and a few years after the original owners sold the restaurant, they expanded to a second location in Lincoln Park. A 2006 fire at the Chicago location closed them for a few months of renovations, but the restaurant now is gorgeous - it's gigantic, and in addition to the main dining room, it also features a second level with larger seating areas and at least one other bar. Their beer list was a bit short, but we ordered a pitcher of Allagash for the table and settled on an order of cheesy garlic bread, a medium cheese thin crust, and a sausage pan pizza.
One cool thing that I noticed was that Pequod's has a sort of priority seating list that you can sign up for starting 24 hours in advance. Luckily there was plenty of room when we arrived and we were seated right away, but that's definitely something I'm tucking away to remember next time we want to go out!

Dani and I don't order delivery very much, surprisingly - and I'm hesitant to order pizza because nothing can ever top the hole in the wall pizza joint we would get in Boston, but last Sunday we were feeling lazy…

Hey! I'm Desi. I really, really like pizza. I first started cataloging my pizza thoughts using an Instagram hashtag to create a kind of scrapbook of cheese, tomato and crust, but I've found myself with a little more to say…Read more
I love coming home. Getting to see my family, relax at home, catch up with old friends... and, of course, eat my Holy Grail pizza. I was lucky to grow up in the hometown of Spanky's Pizza, which ranks…Read more
