Dimo’s Will Bring Its By-the-Slice Magic to a Full-Service Restaurant
by Tony Tran / Eater Chicago / March 22, 2023
To many Chicagoans, Dimo’s Pizza is pretty damn close to the platonic ideal of a late-night pizza joint. Those who find themselves fresh out of a Cub’s game or looking to satisfy post-last-call cravings see the by-the-slice institution as the spot to be. In fact, it’s not unusual to see customers forming lines at 2 a.m. like drunken moths drawn to a tasty flame.
Fortunately for its many fans, in early April Dimo’s will bring its funky spirit to Dimo’s Cafe, a new full-service restaurant in Lincoln Square. The brand is known for its creative pizza interpretations of Reubens, banh mi, mac and cheese, and chicken and waffles (it even had a Malört pizza at one point), and the menu will boast the same whole pies seen at Dimo’s Pizza. It’ll also include a smattering of small dishes to share, including smashed fingerling potatoes, grilled asparagus, and focaccia with whipped ricotta. Items will rotate according to the season and the creative whims of the chef. Read more HERE
