If you are a fan of eating pizza and the city of Chicago,we’ve got some great news for you. Robert’s Pizza announced this month that they will be returning to downtown Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood,news that is sure to excite residents of nearby corporate housing units and tourists.
Robert Garvey studied the art of making pizza for a very long time before he opened up his first shop in Streeterville in 2016. After having a bad situation with the lease holder,Garvey was forced to shutter his namesake and has been on the hunt for new digs ever since. Now,sometime in mid-May,Robert will get his chance to once again live his dreams of operating a pizza shop in the heart of Chicago.
With plenty of nearby temporary housing units and located steps away from the River North neighborhood,Robert’s Pizza is sure to get a lot of foot traffic,especially as it begins to warm up after a long winter.
Garvey is really trying to make his new spot comfortable guests,and he has equipped the restaurant with some of the classic Chicago bar staples: sturdy wooden barstools,coat hooks and,as he likes to say,”a foot rail you can actually rest your feet on.”
The new location also mean more seats,with the new spot being able to seat more than 140 – triple what the old Robert’s location was able to handle. If that’s not enough for you,more than 70 people will be able to be seated outdoors,something that will undoubtedly be used this summer by those who are ready for the warm months that Chicago years for during the winter months.
To celebrate the opening of his brand-new shop,Robert Garvey will be giving away pizza slices (one per visitor) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. May 10.
