I love pizza. I would probably eat it a few times a week if I could…but I do eat a balanced diet. Old Chicago is in the middle of rebranding effort to re-emphasize the restaurant’s commitment to quality food, great value and a welcoming atmosphere for a broad variety of customers and occasions. Interesting fact? This hasn’t changed. Old Chicago has been making their own pizza dough since 1976. But I am guessing you may not have known that.
Yes it’s a chain. But they have pretty darn good pizza. I am really excited to try the Farmers Market pizza:
A ridiculously good roasted veggie pizza. Flame-roasted
eggplant, red and yellow peppers, zucchini, red onion
and basil oil over our house-made bruschetta tomatoes.
Finished with freshly cracked black pepper.
What goes well with pizza? Really good beer. Old Chicago has put a number of its bartenders though a Cicerone certification program, a program that allows them to take on the role of a beer sommelier and they offer flights, a flavor guide and 36 beers on tap plus many options for bottles. They were one of the first to offer craft beers. Points in my book!
