Pizza Worth Eating?

pgreen | Jul 17, 2011 04:28 AM

Sorry to delve into such a controversial subject, but I am looking for some advice. As a college student in the 70's, I was introduced to Chicago-style deep dish pizza at such places as Gino's East, Medici, Dues, etc. After having been raised on DC-style pizza (yes, there is such a thing), and the occasional NY slice, it was a revelation. Next month, I will be dropping my offspring off at school and will be spending one night near the NWU downtown campus (not far, it seems, from the Superior Street GE location). Having had only a single Chicago pie in the last 30+ years, I don't want to miss this opportunity to both feed my nostalgia and to introduce the lil' COTOB to the wonders of one of these artery-clogging masterpieces. With only one night, where should I go and what should we get? I have perused some of the old threads here, but the landscape changes so quickly. Although I am now inclined to do GE, I am a little concerned that its proliferation of locations may have cheapened the brand. Thoughts and suggestions appreciated.
