The Chicago nods at this West Village pizzeria extend to Cubs stickers on the walls, Blue Brothers posters in the restrooms and the two-inch-thick deep-dish pizzas being pulled out of the ovens. North Shore native Emmett Burke offers four versions of his hometown pie—pork sausage, pepperoni, bacon and mushroom-onion-and-pepper—as well as Italian beef sandwiches, burgers (including one stuffed with blue cheese) and pan pizza's lesser known cousin, Second City's thin-cut tavern pies.
