Deep dish recap

The latest food fight took place at a "restaurant" unlike any other. Between the northern views of the city and the couch that, no joke, could fit seven people, if not more, it was the perfect place for a rumble and good-natured arguing about food.

The rumble over deep dish took place at Maggie and Joe's Marina Towers high-floor apartment. When we weren't standing on the rooftop watching fireworks explode over Navy Pier, we were chowing down on three of Chicago's best deep dish pizzas, which - not coincidentally - were from the oldest three pizza joints in the Windy City: Gino's, Uno Chicago Grill, and Lou Malnati's. All three pizzas were scheduled to be delivered at 6:30 so they could be served piping hot and wait times could be avoided. Alas, one of the three arrived early. Another arrived a half hour late. But none of that put a damper on the night.

Since everyone had a strong opinion about where the best stuffed pizza is in town, we did this food fight differently. Every pizza was numbered, one through three, and no one but me (and one of the hosts, Joe) knew which was which until after they ate, argued, guessed, and voted.

Without further ado, I present to you the results of the latest rumble in the Marina Tower jungle.
