Pizza countdown: Chicago chain Giordano's to slice into Uptown market

Author:

Here's the latest dish on the Twin Cities pizza scene. The long-awaited arrival of Chicago favorite Giordano's is nigh.

The Business Journal reports Minnesota's first Giordano's will open on July 15 in Uptown. The pizzeria, known for its award-winning deep dish pies, will be one of two tenants in 2700 Hennepin Ave., sharing the newly constructed building with a Bank of America branch.

The company's website says the chain's original owners were Italian immigrants who introduced a family recipe for stuffed pizza in the first restaurant in 1974 on Chicago’s south side. The site goes on to boast, "Giordano’s has been acclaimed “Chicago’s Best Pizza”by NBC, CBS Chicago, New York Times, Chicago Magazine, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Eater, Home & Garden Magazine, Concierge Preferred and more!"

Giordano's has more than 40 restaurants in and around Chicago, including a Giordano's food truck that serves pizza on the go. NBC/Chicago noted that the truck has an exhaust fan that drives the smell of the baking pie out and onto the streets of the Windy City.
