Roots Handmade Pizza Is Open Near Essex on the Park
Pizza and Chicago are inseparable concepts and the newest addition to the city, Roots Handmade Pizza in South Loop, doesn’t disappoint.
You might already be familiar with Roots from its other locations, in which case you’ll be especially thrilled by this new addition. As one reviewer explains, “Roots has just changed the whole game of Printer’s Row, for the better.” Whether or not the area realized that a rooftop area, specialty pizzas, and Roots’ famous mozzarella sticks were what it needed, they’ve been welcomed with open arms.
One reviewer raves, “Although my stomach is full, my mouth is still watering. I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant. To the overall view (go upstairs), the customer service to the mozzarella sticks–it’s all amazing.” Whatever your preference, something on the menu will have your mouth watering, too. Build yourself a salad with dozens of options or enjoy a creative Quad City-style pizza. Their collaborations with other local chiefs stand out in particular—Won Kim’s Kimski KoPo BBQ Pizza and Oliver Polivey’s Le Bouchon French Onion Soup Pizza are especially well-reviewed.
Whether you come to roots for the view, the mozzarella sticks, the pizza, or the fruity pebbles cheesecake, you’ll be ready to plan your next visit before you even leave.
