'piece pizzeria' on Serious Eats
Making top ten lists is never easy, especially when food is involved. The bars I frequented in Chicago ranged from hip brewpubs to German comfort food. It's all a delicate balance, plugged into a very unofficial, highly subjective formula. But when I return to Chicago, if I were to go back to ten bars, it would be these.
Like the Neil Young of Chicago brewmasters, Jonathan Cutler has won over twenty major awards for his reliably great beer, and he sells it right beside excellent New Haven style pizza at Piece Brewery and Pizzeria.
Is it just us, or are late night food cravings absolute and odd? Sure, after a few drinks any food becomes a good idea. But for whatever reason, only very specific dishes start sounding unreasonably perfect.
