3 PIZZE­RIA UNO

Business Traveler (USA) - - 4 HOURS IN -

Once you’ve worked up an ap­petite walk­ing round Mil­len­nium Park, keep head­ing north on Michi­gan Av­enue and turn left onto Ohio Street. Walk two blocks to the west un­til you see Wabash Av­enue, and you’re at the home of Pizze­ria Uno. No trip to the Windy City is com­plete with­out a slice of the casse­role-like deep­dish pizza, which re­quires a knife and fork to tuck into. The deep dish was first in­vented here in 1943, and there are large crowds gath­er­ing out­side most evenings. It will take around 30-45 min­utes for your deep-dish pie to ar­rive, and do not be sur­prised if you feel com­pletely full af­ter your first gooey piece. The new menu also of­fers burg­ers, sal­ads, and the pizza top­pings in­clude items like egg­plant and broc­coli. But you know why you’re here, so for a re­ally au­then­tic ex­pe­ri­ence, for­get those more es­o­teric pizza top­pings and choose from old fa­vorites; sausage or pep­per­oni (both are the ex­clu­sive house recipes) and loaded with cheese. For the same tasty deep dish with a more out­doors at­mos­phere, walk across the street and try Uno’s sis­ter restau­rant, Pizze­ria Due.
