Superb thin-crust pizza in a room that feels like New Jersey in the 70s.
This Mayfair pie joint has been open since 1940, and though its been dressed up periodically, it has a vibe stuck somewhere in late-70s New Jersey. Distressed copper tables, red vinyl booths, chandeliers cut like Supermans ice fortress, and a colossal mirror of the Chicago skyline all contribute to the vague sense that the place ought to be swamped with mooks wearing pinkie rings. Instead the tables are filled with old folks and families from the neighborhood. What brings them in is the superb crispy thin-crust Chicago- style pizza, which has a near perfect grease-to-cheese ratio and is sauced with a sharp gravy. Next door there's a well-stocked liquor store, where you can pick out a bottle to drink with dinner.
