MINI REVIEW
Union Pizzeria
Evanston has no shortage of restaurants, but this seems to be the one everyone was waiting for. Under a warehouse-high ceiling, the lounge, bar, and tables fill up fast—even on cold rainy nights. Literary types discuss Remembrance of Things Past over artisan beers, couples delight in meant-to-be-shared eggplant caponata, girlfriends start with orange-marinated olives and roasted beets with candied walnuts, and parents cheer for affordable daily plates like lasagne bolognese. Every table orders a thin wood-fired Neapolitan-style pizza. Me? I found the caesar salad dressing heavy on the anchovy, but I loved the homey chicken cacciatore, and Union’s handcrafted pizza Margherita went on my permanent must-have list. 1245 Chicago Ave., Evanston; 847-475-2400. –Penny Pollack
