Pizza or The Demise of Adorno's

francisco | Mar 12, 200509:55 AM

i hadn't seen anything posted about Adorno's pizzera on ashland and thomas (i think). does anyone remember this place? it closed late 2002, early 2003 and i still miss it. i saw that on the building was a statement that the tenant owned rent to the owner, but i never got anything else. i called the number and got nothing. i have not seena nything written in the papers or the Reader. i miss this pizzeria and was wondering if anyone knew if the restauranteur had a new locale. when i drive by now, all i see is a pizza metro sign. it makes me want to cry. adorno's was my favorite thin crust pizza ever and they also had pretty good pasta and meat dishes. i think i am well on my way to being a crusty chicagoan now that my favorite place has closed, an apparent chicago rite of passage.

in other news, i finally got takeout from bubamara last night and it is as good as people say. compares favorably to adorno's; too bad it's takeout only. still, everything was fresh and they have an excellent list of toppings. the sauce was sweet and had a great balance of garlic.
