    One small note. They weren't trying for Detroit style pizza. That was baseless speculation in the Tribune article.

    Your memory is correct. I overheard one of the Cellar Door guys saying they ran out of greens. For what it's worth, they were definitely the least important part of the salad.

    100% agreed. Cellar Door wanted a party and they got/delivered a great one.

    Thanks for the update. We drove by shortly before 5, saw the line and headed to Bonci.

    I liked Great Lake and I’m sure the pizzas were delicious. But, yikes, those photos....

    I'm happy to hear it was a great experience. We had planned to get there a bit before 5, but we forgot about a previous appointment. Decided to try after our appointment anyway and got there about 6:15, saw the line down the sidewalk and kept on going.

    I sadly couldn't make it (weeknight downtown? not for those of us in the burbs now with kids). I'm so glad it went well. They deserve it. I'll catch up with Lydia soon to see how they felt it went.

    They look fine to me. Beautiful crumb in the crust. I mean, just gorgeous. Yeah, the top looks dark, but didn't Burt's pies look that way on the edges? I can see why they speculated Detroit-style. Looks kind of like that to me or pizza al taglio.

    Was it not in the food hall that's downtown? Maybe I'm mistaken.

    It was at Cellar Door Provisions, at Diversey & Whipple. Avondale/Logan = downtown to some folks who don't navigate the city much (not you given the mistake of fact).
    Though with inbound 90/94 traffic, one can still enjoy that element of a trip downtown while exiting sooner for CDP.
