Kosher Gino's East Opening in Wicker Park (Chicago) in 2015

 

If you've ever wanted to taste Gino's East deep-dish pizza in Chicago, you will get your chance...but in a year from now...in Fall 2015! The Bucktown Wicker Park Chabad Jewish Center has plans to open a 25,000 square foot complex on Milwaukee Avenue and the ground floor will be home to "Gino's East Vegetarian," a kosher extension of the famous non-kosher Chicago eatery. Rabbi Yosef Moscowitz, leader of the Bucktown Wicker Park Chabad Jewish Center, said that the pizzeria will be targeted to anyone that wants a meatless pizza. The vegetarian restaurant will be a hub "where people who care about Kosher can come and get quality, original Chicago deep-dish pizza," said Moscowitz. This collaboration with Gino's East Vegetarian has been in the making for more than two years. 

The three story complex, located at 1632 N. Milwaukee Avenue is close to downtown Chicago and 30 minutes south of Skokie, the large Jewish area where you can find most of the kosher restaurants. The new building is just a few short steps from The Living Room, which acts as the Chabad headquarters for the young Jewish community, at 1630 N. Milwaukee Avenue. The comlex will also include a coffee shop, lounge area, Chabad shul and offices on the second floor, a mikvah in the basement and a rooftop deck.  

Check out this hilarious interview with Alisa Hauser, reporter and producer at DNAinfo.com, about the restaurant opening. Maybe she should have done a bit more research on Chabad and what kosher really means. At least she knew that pork isn't kosher...
