Burt's Place Pizza Outing

I once watched a documentary on excellence and discovered that the world best sushi place is not some fancy super-expensive restaurant, but some unassuming little hole-in-the-wall. Burt’s Place is the equivalent for pizza. Anthony Bourdain, author of Kitchen Confidential and host of No Reservations, has proclaimed Burt’s Place the best pizza in the world. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0iys-vgD6M Airdate 2/2/2009)

Also: http://checkplease.wttw.com/restaurants/burts-place.

This explains some of the hoops you need to jump through to eat here: reservations are mandatory (despite some online reviews saying it is just recommended), and you need to place your order when you make your reservations. Evidently Burt buys just enough food for that day’s pizza schedule.

Time: TBD (I’m trying to work this event along with the Can’t Stop the Serenity event on the same day)

    AUDIBLE: We were unable to contact them to pre-order, so we're going to Perquod's in Morton Grove instead...

    Someplace accessible is a definite improvement, but not how I want to break the Yom Kippur fast.

      Understood. BTW: if you have a favorite pizza place just bring it up. I'll go through the details of posting it here, and on Facebook, and in the Chicago-sf.org forums.
