MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Ditch your diet, grab your fellow Blackhawks fans and head to this Lincoln Park stalwart for some of the best pies in town. Christened for Captain Ahab’s sailing ship, Pequod’s menu promises smooth sailing for sports bar noshers, featuring a lineup of shareable bar snacks such as wings and mozzarella sticks, hearty sandwiches like tender Italian beef and both thin-crust and deep-dish pan pizzas. Grab that cutlery before digging into the buttery crust of each deep-dish pie, ringed with blackened cheese at the edges. Toppings like pepperoni, fresh garlic and crunchy sautéed onions are generously layered between tart tomato sauce and handfuls of cheese for an oozy jumble in every bite. A towering wedge of fudge cake awaits those with room for dessert.
