Edwardo's Natural Pizza - Chicago
Note that the Dearborn outpost for Edwardo's Natural Pizza is delivery and carry-out only. The Chicago-based pizza chain boasts additional locations in Oak Park and Munster, Ind.
You'll find starters like wild mushroom crostini, crispy Brussels sprouts and spinach mozzarella sticks on the menu at this casual pizza parlor in the Gold Coast. Though Edwardo's been around for a long time, it keeps up with some of the trendier pizzerias around town.
Pasta choices feature items usually featured on blackboards at more upscale Italian restaurants. For example, there's tagliatelle topped with eight-hour ragu alla bolognese. Also get ready for brown butter gnocchi topped with an over-easy egg; black squid ink linguini; and Pesto Wheat Pappardelle topped with green peas and flamed tomatoes.
Those coming for pizza should not be disappointed. Guests may choose from Edwardo's award-winning stuffed pizzas, gourmet thin pies or customize their own. Favorite selections include stuffed spinach and cheese; home-style BBQ chicken; and Edwardo's Special (a combination of lean sausage, fresh green peppers, mushrooms, onions).
