Owner Charles Hamade, who ran U Pie in Englewood till his lease (from former restaurant Wild Ginger) ran out, spoke with Boozy Burbs about his plans to bring his Mediterranean-style pizzeria back to town. Chef Philipo is back too, manning the pizza oven (gas) which will run at a toasty 800 degrees, with each pie cooked for three minutes each.
The pizzas are 10 inch personal sized (sourdough and gluten-free will be additional crust choices), made with San Marzano tomatoes and homemade mozzarella and cooked in the 800 gas oven for about 3 minutes. Available toppings will include vegetables and proteins – though Hamade is adding a raw seafood bar (clams, oysters) which can also top your pies (though they can also be ordered separately). Prices for pizza start at $6.95 each.
The other dishes on the menu, dubbed “U Plates”, will host an array of pastas and salads. Everything here will also be customizable, with different sides, toppings and more.
The 1500 square foot dining room has about 20 seats. U Pie is open 7 days a week, offering dine-in, takeout and delivery.
