    You can't go wrong with good pizza and good dining companions. The LTH North Lunch Group and Barnaby's in Northbrook fits the bill. Ronnie kicks off the Barnaby's review here - http://lthforum.com/bb/viewtopic.php?f= ... =barnaby's

    Come one come all - even the folks from the Evanston Lunch Group that don't eat in Evanston are welcome. 8)

    Hi,

    I've been reading about Wells Brothers lately. Barnaby's will be a good substitute until I am able to head north for tavern pizza.

    Count me in, plus one.


    Thanks!

    Dave148, thank you for organizing a great LTH North lunch and taking in a non member, even if you wouldn't show me the secret handshake. It's been years since I've been up to Barnaby's, but the pizza is as good as I remembered. We tried six different pizzas along with a couple of hamburgers and the onion rings.

    I remember the onion rings being hand breaded 20 years ago, but that's gone, they were serviceable, but nothing special. The burgers were good, I've always liked them, a good option if you don't like pizza, but I wouldn't drive all the way to Northbrook for them. The pizza is clearly the star of the show. If I remember correctly we had a plain cheese, sausage, pepperoni and onion, bacon and mushroom, sausage, onion and jalapeno, and one other pepperoni and ?, someone will have to refresh my memory as to the second ingredient. The crust was fluted like a pie crust and very crunchy with a heavy sprinkling of cornmeal on the bottom. A couple of people found the taste reminiscent of Lou Malaniti's, but I thought it lacked the sweetness I've found in Lou's. I am very much a crunch person so I really liked this crust, but I can see it might not be to everyones taste. My favorite was the bacon and mushroom pizza, I find myself still thinking about today, bits of crunchy bacon with carmelized mushrooms, the taste of both really shone through. Too often pizza restaurants don't cook their mushrooms enough to bring out the nutty, woodsy flavor, but they really shone at Barnaby's. My second choice is the sausage, jalapeno and onion, I really liked the taste of their sausage, not too sweet with an undertone of fennel seed, the jalapeno's added a nice touch of heat.

    All in all a great lunch and it was great to catch up with so many friends. Sorry pairs4life, no one took pictures.

    A great lunch yesterday and thanks, to Dave, for setting it up.

    No pics from yesterday's lunch but here are some from a meal back in November 2009 (I thought I'd posted these in the past but I cannot find the thread). This isn't exactly what we ordered yesterday but it's close enough and nothing ever really changes at Barnaby's, which is a large part of its charm . . .

    Glad you could make it. However, we here at LTH North don't have a secret handshake. I think you might have us confused with the Evanston Lunch Group That Doesn't Always Eat In Evanston. :D

    Dave,

    Thanks for organizing our lunch at Barnaby's. I enjoyed the various pizzas and, as always, enjoyed the company of my of fellow LTHers.

    I enjoyed all the pizzas so much that I thought afterward it'd be a long time before I'd be ready to eat pizza again. But last night we cooked and ate the par-baked sausage and extra cheese pizza that I took home and stashed in the freezer on Tuesday, and it was delicious. Thanks again, Dave, for organizing the lunch and accomodating my schedule.
