About the restaurant
Currently only accepting reservations for parties of 6-16 online. Reservations for parties greater than 8 are very limited and large parties might be split into multiple tables. Please walk-in for small party availability.

At Piece Brewery, the spirit of piece, love, and harmony are infused into every bite and sip. Nestled in a skylit loft, this vibrant establishment seamlessly unites the flavors of award-winning, New Haven-style thin-crust pizza with the the longest continuously-operating and most award-winning brewpub in Chicago, a tradition that has been upheld since 2001.

Whether you're savoring a slice of our renowned pies or sampling our diverse range of house brews, every visit promises a symphony of taste and community. As the sun sets, the atmosphere transforms into a lively sports-bar setting, creating an unforgettable experience where great food, great brews, and great entertainment converge.

It was good food. I wish they had a few more menu choices than pizza, salad and chips. The service most of the time was great, but we were left with the check and nobody taking our credit card for a very long time. This should be the easiest part of service, but somehow it often gets goofed up.

About the restaurant
NaKorn started with our belief that authentic Thai food should be found not only in Thailand—but here, as well.

Our menu offers a perfect blend of bold flavors with traditional, old-world recipes in a modern presentation. Using only the finest ingredients, we created unique dishes layered with flavors.

Good environment, solid pizza for 1/2 price and a great selection of beer. Service was very attentive. Calamari appetizer was hot and fresh, but the cocktail sauce was weak and disappointing.
