Chicago Pizza Kitchen Relocating??

Davwud Feb 4, 2011 03:35 AM

Happened to be driving across Major Mac yesterday and noticed a different sign out front of CPK. I called the place and their machine says they've closed and are relocating. No new location but check the website for further information. I've checked and they still show that they are open on MM. THEY ARE NOT. http://chicagopizzakitchen.ca/

In his message Spiros thanked all his customers.

This is not good. Let's just hope it's a temporary hiatus and he's back up and running in the city where he wants to be soon.

    Davud,

    you must have missed the thread which had some posts about the closing.
    http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/675291

    My guess is that they probably won't re-open. Most businesses that re-locate continue operation and then seamlessly open the new location. All that is happening now is his customers are getting their pizza fix somewhere else.

      I posted that it had closed on that thread but it's mysteriously disappeared.

      We've been talking about that. Mrs. Sippi is speculating that a move back to SF may be in order. To not even have an address to look forward to is not encouraging.

      Bigabaldi's is gonna be my new fix I guess.

          crappy news, maybe the downtown location didnt pan out and hes looking into opening another location elsewhere. I really hope it opens up because ive been meaning to try the place but never made it there. I guess if I want Chicago Pizza enough, I can go to Hamilton, but I think id rather keep going west until I get to Chicago and grab the real deal!

          Damn, last time I went was 2005, had some Uno's(in I think the original location, a small bar type restaurant that looked pretty old( and some Giordano's. I recall the pizza I got from the smaller bar type place as being better. I wish I knew exactly what it was, but I was staying at Le Meridian and it was a couple blocks walk away.

          One day ill be back...

            This was really one of the best and most unique pizza offerings in the GTA. Really hope they're able to get up and running again soon.

              It's a sad day in the GTA if Chicago pizza leaves for good. Spiros filled one of the gaping holes in our arsenal of so-called "great international cuisine".

              I've been to the original Uno in downtown Chicago (it's nothing like the Uno Chicago Grill chain) and to a Gino's East in the suburbs, both are amazing. Next time I'm there I'd like to try Lou Malnati's and Giordano's.

        This is sad indeed. I've been checking their Facebook page daily, but it does not look good.

          This place was suprisingly good! My sister lives near there. I had their garlic balls - awesome! Deep dish pizza - awesome... But never had the deep fried cinnamon balls :(
