    Well, there are two Unos (UES+UWS), though I haven't tried them. You can also get Lou Malnati's over the web. There is no 'settling', both Chi and NY are great but different.

      Why would alone come to NYC and want pizzeria uno. Lets be serious. I was kidding when I suggested it.

        Wasn't recommending, just saying it's there. Love it in Chicago, very disappointed at Uno San Francisco. Maybe it doesn't 'travel'

          Oh I see. So is it a chain in Chicago?

            When I lived in Chicago, there was Pizzaria Uno and Pizzaria Due, about a block apart. Founded in 1943, they seem to have invented deep-dish pizza, and it was excellent and entirely different from NY or Italian pizza. (I haven't been back in decades). Now, a check of the website unos.com reveals a chain with dozens of places. I have no idea if the ownership is the same or the quality is the same as it was originally. My guess is that it is just another MBA-run corporate food chain.

              We have been to Chicago as well. The 'original' UNOs was fantastic!!! Very thick crust, it couldn't be any better than that. But NYC pizza was definitely awesome as well. Comparing those two is like comparing apples and oranges.

              Uno Chicago GRILL is the chain/franchise. Serves different pizza from Pizzeria Uno and Pizzeria Due in Chicago.

              Mind the word "Grill" in the name!

                But the chain is a descendant of Uno and Due.

          Pizzeria uno or dominos. Seriously, you don't want deep dish here.

            About 1000 miles away. There is no deep dish in NYC.

              And can we keep it 1000 miles away?

                Ha. It's staying away. It wouldn't do well here.
