There’s plenty of great places to eat nearby as well. If you are a fan of Chicago-style deep dish pizza, Giordano’s is a must and then head over to La Carraia Gelato in Dr Phillips down the street off of Sand Lake Road.
If you ever go to Chicago, you know there are a few places that are just known for their deep dish pizza and one of those is Giordano’s founded in 1974.
Inspired by Mama Giordano’s “Italian Easter Pie”, this double- crusted, cheese stuffed masterpiece is now famous all around the world.
