I loved visiting the new Soho House with my parents last weekend! They stayed at the hotel for two nights and we got to enjoy the club levels and rooftops along with the chic room. It was a treat. Along with that, we ate at the stellar pizzeria – Pizza East – that churned out some tasty pies. Continue reading Pizza East @ Soho House Chicago
I was so happy to check out Roots Handmade Pizza in the West Town neighborhood of Chicago. The restaurant/bar was aesthetically pleasing, and I can see this being a great local joint along with the long list of beers on tap. The garage door windows go up in the summertime and their booths have benches winding around to the next table.
Because it was Sunday, Roots had a mimosa special with four splits of Champagne and a pitcher of orange juice. They presented it in an adorable way and my friends and I were happy to indulge.

I recently had the opportunity to join a group of pizzeria owners, operators, etc. at the Pizza Executive Summit in Chicago. It was a fun-filled experience that lasted from Sunday-Tuesday, and I was so excited to be a part of it. I will be posting more details on the event, but wanted to highlight the first part of the trip with Chicago Pizza Tours. John Porter led our private group of appx 35 participants to three pizzerias around the city on a trolley! Our first stop was Pizano’s and the last stop was Bacino’s, both places I have written about in the past. I wanted to dedicate this post to our experience at Coalfire Pizza in the West Loop.
