Parlor Pizza Bar
Where we've featured it
The original Parlor Pizza in the West Loop is surprisingly club-like for a pizza place, so it’s not surprising that the one in River North has the same kind of upbeat atmosphere. Also like the original, this one is huge, with a nearly-identical menu of wood-fired pizzas, salads, and bar snacks. The pizzas are solid (the “bee sting” with hot honey and ’nduja is really good), and there’s a big bar in the center of the restaurant that’s perfect for watching sports.
Parlor Pizza is getting closer to becoming a full-blown club now that it has a new River North location (which has the same menu as the one in Wicker Park, with pizza, bar snacks, and plenty of beer).
