We had a party of 3 for Saturday morning brunch. Frank was our server and he was great! Very attentive and was on top of our bottomless mimosa refills without us even having to ask. $25 bottomless mimosas for 90 minutes and delicious food with great service, can’t beat that! We will definitely be back the next time we visit Chicago.

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!

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.

I've been to this place before, and I'm liking the new menu! It was nice to have the split bowl with both broths, and the new instant ramen additions were awesome! Can't wait to return for another visit!
