    I'm sure all we Chicagoans are thrilled and very optimistic on their behalf.

          they are now open for breakfast at 8am and they close at 8pm. The food was pretty good but the prices were a bit high in my opinion. Their menu is now posted on the CRC website http://www.crcweb.org/guide_chicago.php

            The prices don't look so bad. Similar to what Da Nali's used to be I think.
            How was the service? Cleanliness, etc.?

            I was just there! The food was great and the prices were fine. It seems they are trying to open a new danalis. The only thing that wasnt so good was the service. I came in and the guy was like oh.....um....heres a menu i think they should get more settled on how there serving you.. But the food was spectacular. Everything on the menu looked good. They really arent there for pizza i mean i think they sell like a personal pizza.
            Anyways it was great and i left there satisfied

              So, it took me a day extra to report but the food was good. I had breakfast for breakfast and was overall happy. The Manager was open to the fact that there needs to be some changes/additions. The hash brown were not much more than mashed potatoes on a griddle and they did not have tea. I am a bit dissapointed that it again is trying to be everything to everyone but I guess that man cannot live on breakfast alone. The chef is someone that has worked in the chicago Jewish community for a while.

              The place was clean and I did not find the price to be outrageous.

                Ok, you have all convinced me. I think we'll try it this weekend. I have been craving a good greek panini for awhile.
                Hopefully the service will improve by the time we get there:)
