1. Nella Pizzeria Napoletana 2423 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60614 (Lincoln Park)

Opening next Friday and chef'd by a fourth-generation Italy-born pizzaiola who's been holding down the oven since she was 13, NPN is a sparkling temple of 'za decked with huge black and white portraits of dough being made, framed Italian soccer jerseys, and rows of glass-encased foosball players, all centered around a massive pizza oven hand built from 12,000 lbs of brick hauled from Mt. Vesuvius to ensure explosive flavor, and less hilariously that the pizza gets cooked.
