Whenever I’m traveling, I’m less concerned with what the best restaurants are in a particular city than with what the best restaurant dishes are in a particular city. If you eat at a great restaurant, but get stuck with a bad dish, you’ve just wasted a great meal. But if you hunt down the best individual menu items, you’re bound to be pleased.
This also applies to pizza. There are certain pies that pizza places do better than others. Which is why I’m such a fan of this recent Chicago Magazine article which lists the 25 best pizzas in Chicago. As no place made the list twice, the article is essentially telling people what the “not to miss” pie is at some of Chicago’s best pizzarias.
The best pie in the city goes to…. the cremini mushroom and dante cheese pie at Great Lake!
