    In late Nov 2013, Mrs Willie & I went to Naples Italy where we of course enjoyed true Neapolitan style pizza. Upon our return I wanted to revisit the same pizza style here in Chicago.

    There is actually a certification a restaurant & staff can complete to be designated as producing true Neopolitan pizza. The organization is in Naples Italy, the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, which certifies restaurants worldwide for authentic Neopolitan pizza; the certification process is extensive and extends to recipes, ingredients, cooking equipment, etc. They have certified <50 restaurants in the United States, and we in the Chicago area are blessed with three locations that have this certification: Parkers' (in Downer's Grove IL a western burb of Chicago), and two in the city of Chicago: Spacca Napoli & Rosso Forno.

    So c'mon out for a rare weekend night Milepoint dinner at Forno Rosso on Friday night February 28.

    Time TBD, but most likely 7pm.

    Who is interested in dinner ? ALL ARE WELCOME!

    You had me at Italy (and being close to ORD helps). I'll check my schedule to see if I can make it.

    If you (or any other Milepointer is flying into/out of ORD or staying at ORD area hotel), I can provide a ride to/from the restaurant as I live 3 miles north of ORD & will be passing right by ORD on my way to/from restaurant. So free car service !! (you'll have to put up with a Malamute hair or two)

    Thanks for the offer. Mals are incredible dogs, so it would be honor to get shed on if I can make it. Seems the flight prices are much higher than they were a few weeks ago, so I'll keep checking.

    You know I never pass up a good meal (remember what I put back at the bbque place? :p) However, I'm going to have to pass as a previous commitment gets in the way. Enjoy!

    sorry to hear.

    BTW, the hot chocolate offer still stands, let me know when you've got a couple hours during a weekday to go have one.

    Mrs. Gargoyle and I ate at Spacca Napoli a couple of months ago- excellent place. If the other two are to the same standard they are certainly worth a visit.

    Nuevo Leon doesn't take reservations but the 16 of us shouldn't have a problem getting a table on a Monday night.

    So that means if you are on the fence, fear not about coming out, there is more than enough room, all are welcome !

    I may be able to come. Still working on it.

    On another note, who's up for that hot chocolate I talked about?
