Reno

Location: 2607 N Milwaukee
Cost: About $15 per person

My buddy DWeiss works in the loop. Occasionally toward the end of the work day he'll shoot me a text to see if I want to grab dinner. For some reason, he always recommends places in his neighborhood. Sometimes I think he just wants a car ride back to his Logan Square apartment, but I choose to see the best in people. Anyways, the other week we went to check out one of his favorite neighborhood pizza joints, Reno.

Logistics
Reno is on a busy corner in Logan Square. They've got a brick oven in the middle with a long bar and line of seating. We got a spot on the patio though since it was pretty warm outside. We were a little close to the next table which curbed our usually inappropriate conversation, but otherwise the patio was nice. Our waiter was quick, and the cost was reasonable. Our salad was $7, and our pizza was $12.

The Food
We went with the Quinoa Salad to get started. With grapes, pecans, and a sweet dijon vinaigrette the salad was spot on. It was refreshing but very substantial.

The Quinoa Salad

For pizza we went with the Paulina, a pie topped with pepperoni and jalapeno pesto. The crust was chewy with a nice burn from the oven. The cheese was a bit grainy and oily. The pesto and pepperoni combined for a nice kick. The secret here was when DWeiss asked for the habanero infused honey for dipping. I guess you have to ask for this specifically as it only comes with a few dishes, but it made the meal. The honey was thick and the perfect combo of sweet and spicy.

The Paulina Pizza

Overall
Reno was a great spot to go hang out and enjoy a cheap meal. The pizza was creative and well constructed. I wish I had time to hit them up in the morning for one of their wood fired bagels, but as far as the pizza goes, I'm giving them 4 out of 5 Pearls.
