Gino's East South Loop
Gino's East Sports Bar

The South Loop location of this pizza empire tries to get hip to the surrounding Columbia College kids with mason-jar chandeliers, a pair of wines on tap, a dozen taps devoted exclusively to local breweries (such as 5 Rabbit, Two Brothers and Revolution) and an updated menu with innovations like a charcuterie plate and caprese salad in a jar. Lest you go all sacre bleu in horror, the bulk of the menu is still good ol' deep-dish.

This is my favorite Gino's location - it's on Dearborn between Congress and Harrison right in the heart of Printer's Row, and it has an industrial vibe (beam ceilings, wood floors and Edison lightbulbs everywhere. They have a great happy hour special, and this location is never very busy!
