Pequod’s Pizza

Pizza in Lincoln Park & Old Town

Like the ship in Moby Dick, from which this neighborhood restaurant takes its name, Pequod’s pan-style (akin to deep dish) pizza is a thing of legend – head and shoulders above chain competitors because of its caramelized cheese, generous toppings and sweetly flavored sauce. Neon beer signs glow from the walls, and Blackhawks jerseys hang from the ceiling in the affably rugged interior.

Wait times can be long, but you can pass the time drinking at the WhaleTale bar one door away; Pequod's will page you when your table is ready.
