Loaded with family traditions and a secret family pizza sauce. Renovated space including a new bar and a bright, welcome interior which house some of the original recipes from the first Village Pizza of Long Grove. Flat-screen televisions fill the dining rooms, now featuring a video-gambling room. The patio will be open during warm months. We offer thin, hand-tossed round pizzas, and the House favorite Square Detroit style!

About the restaurant
Thank you for choosing SLYCE, where pizza is our passion. We have preserved the art of making hand crafted artisanal coal fired pizzas. Our mission is simple: Have a simple menu that allows us to focus special attention to every ingredient that comes into our building. We choose and use the best quality ingredients possible. We do not believe in premade, mass produced food. We source locally grown or raised products whenever possible and use one of the cleanest natural burning resources to heat our ovens. At SLYCE less is more, as our fresh ingredients are delicately placed, not piled on, to create a perfectly balanced pie. Our dough is made in house daily, hand stretched to order, and baked next to a burning pile of coal giving it a thin, bubbly crust with charred edges and leopard spotting on the bottom. So sit back and relax, as we hand craft you one of your favorite, perfectly charred pies.

Unfortunately our pizzas were not too warm. And like everywhere, prices have gone up a lot!

We had never been here before, and wanted to try somewhere new for a birthday. I’m happy we did and we will be back soon! The restaurant is on the grounds of the golf course, with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Most of the outdoor table are in the shade so it’s comfortable on sunny summer days. It was a very muggy day, so we sat inside; next time we’ll try outside. But wherever you sit, you’ve got a lovely view of the course. The menu is well-varied, and there’s something for everyone. Next time we’ll try the pizza! But everything we ate was delicious. Had delicious cocktails too! The service was really excellent-the staff really made us feel at home! I’m so glad we choose “Coarse Italian!” We will see you again soon!

Shared a Greek salad and Branzino. Both excellent and ample. Our friends also shared the whole Branzino and they split a watermelon salad. They, too, enjoyed their meal. A negative is charging $2 for ice with a $14 cocktail. Wasn’t even one of those fancy large ice cubes. We had outdoor seating which was very enjoyable.

Evanston
About the restaurant
Bluestone is a Chicago-style restaurant in Evanston that offers homestyle cooking in a warm and welcoming environment. Owner John, whose obsession with golf led to the more than 250 pin flags decorating the restaurant, opened Bluestone after transitioning from commercial film production. His goal was to create a locale that was filled with friendliness and familiar faces, all while serving a variety of menu options with a hometown feel. Guests can enjoy favorites like crab cakes, or branch out and discover a new one from their wrap, soup, quesadilla or burger menus. Don't forget to try homemade specialties such as the turkey or black bean burgers, or the Bluestone signature smoked wings. There are also several thin-crust pizza options, like the pesto or BBQ chicken offerings. Whether you're just passing through or a long-time resident, Bluestone, at the corner of Central St. and Prairie Ave., is everyone's home away from home.
