On my last pizza dispatch from Chicago, I took you inside John's Pizzeria, a decidedly old-school joint that serves extra-thin pizza in a room that looks suspiciously like an aging 1970's suburban living room (remember the buxom young brunettes?). So for this review I wanted to go as far in the other direction as I could, and locate the most lavish place imaginable to satisfy a pizza craving. I knew exactly where to go.

Looking forward to Thanksgiving, but don't want to have to deal with cooking any of it? Luckily, a number of Chicago area restaurants are not only open, they are embracing the holiday with special menus and deals.
Congratulations to Danny Grant, chef of RIA and Balsan, for making Food & Wine's list of the "Best New Chefs of 2012."
