Pizza East in the Fulton Market District, like the Soho House hotel where it resides, is hip and trendy—and surprisingly kid-friendly, especially on Sunday nights when it’s Family Supper night.
If You Go:
113 N. Green St., Chicago
Not only is the food superb, the price is right. From 4-7 p.m. every Sunday, diners can select a salad, pasta and gourmet wood-fired pizza served to the table family-style for $50 per table and up to four people. Each additional person is $12.50 and drinks are 50 percent off.
The special is a bit restrictive, however, in terms of what kind of salads, pastas and pizzas guests can choose. The pizza is a choice between the eggplant, tomato, mascarpone and pesto or the spicy salame, tomato and mozzarella. My kids would rather eat dirt than eggplant, so we were left with just one option.
Although the deal is a good one, going off the Supper Night menu is recommended. The wood oven items are incredible, including the whole cauliflower with lemon, yogurt and chili ($10); the mac and cheese, among the best in the city ($10); and Brussels sprouts ($11), which taste much better than they probably sound.
The pizza we found most tasty is not part of the family-style menu. Try the spicy sausage, cream, mozzarella and broccolini or the crispy pork belly, tomato, mushrooms and mozzarella, both $16. For dessert, go for the salted chocolate caramel tart.
And though the food is the highlight, the urban ambiance completes the experience.
