Rosemont has some fantastic restaurants, but they tend to be of the 'big and glitzy' variety. If you’re willing to drive about eight miles to the suburb of Morton Grove, you’ll find what serious pizza scholars call the best pie in the metropolitan area, served in a low-key, no-frills setting. Just be sure to call ahead: The eponymous Burt makes pizzas by appointment only. Tell him what and what time you’d like to eat, and it’ll be ready when you arrive.
