One of New York’s most famous pizzerias is headed to Chicago.

Prince Street Pizza plans to open a location in West Loop this fall at 939 W. Randolph St., which was previously the home of Stephanie Izard's private event space Little Goat Kitchen. Originally established in 2012 on Manhattan's Prince Street, the restaurant now boasts 13 eateries across New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Southern California and Toronto. Seoul Taco owner David Choi will serve as the managing operator of the Chicago outpost.

“We are thrilled to open Prince Street Pizza in Chicago as it’s one of the greatest food cities in America, known for its incredible pizza. Our signature Sicilian pies are a great balance between the city's famous tavern and deep-dish styles and we look forward to introducing them this fall in Fulton Market. It’s an honor to be surrounded by some of the best restaurants in Chicago, in a neighborhood with such a vibrant food culture,” Prince Street Pizza co-founder Lawrence Longo said in a release.

Prince Street Pizza offers “Sicilian SoHo Squares”—featuring a thick, crisp and fluffy crust—as well as Neapolitan pies. Its signature creation is the Spicy Spring, a slice topped with fra diavolo sauce, pepperoni, fresh mozzarella and pecorino romano. Chicago-exclusive menu items are also planned for the new restaurant.

This won’t be the first time a popular New York pizzeria has expanded to the Midwest market. Paulie Gee’s, a Brooklyn import, currently has two locations in Chicago and Roberta’s was briefly a part of Urbanspace Food Hall in the Loop a few years back.

While Chicago will always be a deep dish and tavern-style pizza town, we can appreciate a good pie no matter where it comes from. In fact, you’ll find everything from New York slices to Detroit-style squares on our list of the best pizzas in Chicago.

After all, variety is the spice of life.
