Frasca Pizza and Wine Bar - Chicago
The casually upscale pizza lounge in Lakeview offers Neapolitan-inspired pies as well as a well-curated list of wines by the glass and bottle. Frasca Pizza and Wine Bar is from the team behind such popular North Side destinations as Crosby's Kitchen, Ella Elli, The Smoke Daddy and Tuco & Blondie.
Guests will be thrilled to find daily specials, from half off on bottles of wine (Mondays) to BOGO pizzas (Wednesdays). Pizzas, of course, are cooked in the wood-fired oven that's the centerpiece of the restaurant.
Classic Neapolitan pies like margherita, pepperoni and funghi are offered, and diners may also build their own from premium ingredients such as caramelized white onions, roasted mushrooms, fennel sausage and oven-dried tomatoes. Non-pizzas entrees range from roasted brick chicken to pan-seared salmon. Gluten-free pastas are also available.
