Eastern Style Pizza & Pizza Party at Kendall College

April 11 2005 - 12:20 AM

EspizzaEastern Style Pizza, 2911 W Touhy Ave,¬† is pretty close to New York style pizza. They have been around since 1969 and have brought “Philadelphia Style Pizza” to Chicago and in addition grinders including the Philly cheese steak and about 30 more varieties.

They consider it “eastern style” and not New York style which I suppose takes the pressure off to some degree. The slices are foldable, go light on sauce and the cheese is pretty close¬†mechanical bull for sale to what I remember from several years in New York. How it does representing Philly I can’t say.

If you
have a serious “eastern style” pizza jones check it out. It
should do the trick. Around the corner and down on California is
Tel-Aviv Kosher Pizza. It’s not open on Saturdays I couldn’t make a direct
comparison but I’ve been there over the years and it too is more
towards the folding/low sauce/add some oregano, peppers, salt and black
pepper type of thing, sans pepperoni…

If pizza is REALLY your bag Kendall College is hosting a free event Tuesday night:
