Vapiano

Location: 44 S Wabash
Cost: Probably about $15 per person

It's easy to sell Jenny on Italian restaurants. I mean, what's not to love about chicken and carbohydrates. To top that off, when you have the option to tinker with your dish it's even more up her alley. When Vapiano asked me to come by and check out their new spot in The Loop, it seemed like a good match.

Logistics
Vapiano has an interesting setup. You pick out a table and get a "credit card" so to speak. They have separate stations for appetizers, pizza, pasta, drinks, and desserts. I'd imagine they're jam packed for lunch, but there was practically no wait for dinner. Each "main" dish was in the $10 range. We split a bunch of items, making for what would have been a pretty inexpensive meal.

The Food
To start things off we went with the Bruschetta Trio and the Insalata Mista. My favorite bruschetta was the Pesto and Parmesan. The salad was loaded with tomatoes, zucchini, and mozzarella.

We moved right on to pizza and pasta with the BBQ Chicken Pizza and the Salami E Ricotta Con Rucola. I know it's not the authentic way to go but we both have a soft spot for BBQ chicken pizza. The pasta was made that day, and the salami added a savory crisp to the dish.

For dessert we got the Chocolate Mousse. It was a smooth and rich way to round out the meal.

Overall
Vapiano puts a nice twist on Italian dining. There's a DIY feel to the whole thing that makes things casual in a creative setting. I really enjoyed the pasta and the salad. Since they invited me out, there won't be a Pearl rating, but I hope you check Vapiano out sometime soon.
