Went for the first time tonight. I visited Chicago in June and everyone told me to go to Lou Malnati’s for deep dish pizza. I didn’t get it. Thought it was ok. But I had to check out the new place on Freret that specializes in deep dish. My wife had the Kingpin and I had the margherita. They were both excellent. I especially dug the sauce. I prefer saucy pizza to cheesy pizza. The crust was good. You know it looks good when you burn your tongue, which I did, but I couldn’t help myself. I had to dig in. The menu was very limited, but the owner said they’d be expanding it after they got their feet wet. Seemed pretty busy for 6:00 on a Thursday night. I’d definitely go back.
