Seems mixologist J. Spillane (Matchbox) has mad kitchen skills to boot--he and partner Bill Carroll (Jub Jub Club), both originally from Massachusetts, get rave reviews for the coal-fired East Coast-style pizza at their West Town spot. The 'za here has a foldable, crispy, slightly charred crust--the exact opposite of Chicago's own gut-busting deep-dish. Signature pies include the pesto, with ricotta, pesto, black olives and olive oil. You can also build your own with toppings such as Calabrese hot salami, hot fennel salami or sweet Italian sausage.
