Every summer for the past seven years I've gone to Chicago to visit an old friend, see the sights, attend a music festival, and eat delicious food. I've had some amazing fine dining there, like Frontera Grill and Girl and the Goat, and some epic brunches at Ann Sather and Southport Grocery. And of course, I've had my share of deep-dish pizza, even though as a New Yorker, it feels almost sacrilegious. Chicago style pizza is so different than New York style and Neapolitan pizza, it's almost a completely different food--but they still share the common elements of crust, sauce, and cheese, which is always a winning combination in my book. Some of my favorite places to get deep dish pizza in Chicago are Gino's East and The Art of Pizza.
Have you ever been to Chicago? Do you like deep-dish pizza?
