Though this bar-restaurant features a tasty pizza well known for its 40-some year history in the south suburbs, it's all about the North Side Cubbies here. From the name (a nod to the fall color change of the ivy at Wrigley Field) and Cubs scoreboard replica, to baseball game showings on seven 42-inch HD plasma TVs, three 60-inch HD plasmas and one 90-inch projection screen, it's root, root, root for the home team. Guys take note: There are even TVs in the men's room. Recipes come courtesty of the family-owned Palermo's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria, including the delicious sweet sauce deep-dish pan, thin crust and stuffed pizza, plus pastas and standard pub fare. There's also a 50-foot curved mahogany bar for downing a drink or three. For a change of scenery, walk to the back of the bar to check out the speakeasy-inspired room, called 1914.
