Do you like pizza? Who doesn't? That is why it

is a safe bet for a date. Go to Chicago Pizza

and Oven Grinder at 2112 N. Clark St. It is

something truly original to Chicago. It is dark

and woody, which gives a hint of romance. At

the same time, it is loud and fun with a full bar in

the middle of the restaurant.

The salads are HUGE so you can split one with

your sweetie. They pile on all of the ingredients

and you will have to take some home if there

are just two of you.

The pizza is like nothing you have ever had.

They put the ingredients into a pie pan and

basically put a crust of dough on top. After a trip

to the oven, the pizzas get a flip, flopping their

toppings into the now crusty crust that's shaped

like a bowl. Mushrooms, meat sauce, cheese,

and whatever else you want create a hot tub of

yumminess. You will have some of that to take

home too.

Truly Chicago. Truly delicious.

Afterwards take a walk through the zoo at night.

See what the animals are up to while you digest.
