Frankie’s 5th Floor Pizzeria

by gastronomicbypass

Location – 900 N. Michigan (Bloomingdale’s Mall)

In one word – Sufficient

Food – Lettuce Entertain You closed Tucci Bennuch…only to open another Italian restaurant in its stead.  In Frankie’s Pizzeria, you can have pizza, antipasta, salads and a few pasta entrees.  We shared a margharita pizza.  For what it was, a pizza on Michigan Avenue, it wasn’t bad.  However, I wouldn’t flock far and wide to get it.  If you’re in the area and need a rest stop while shopping, this will suffice.  At first I was a little turned off with the thick crust, but then I bit into it and was impressed by how soft it was.  We also shared the arugula and fennel salad.  It was fine, uneventful.

Drink – They have a wine list if you feel the need to inebriate yourself before walking into yet another Banana Republic along the Mag Mile.  As it was just noon, I partook in a diet Coke.

Service – It’s fine, again nothing to report about. 

Scene – This is a rest stop, not a destination.  You really can come as you are (clothes-wise), no one will care.  I always forget that the Mag Mile is filled with spoiled children carrying their overpriced American Girl dolls, so be prepared for that.  We came at noon on a Saturday and it was relatively empty.  When we were leaving around 1:30, the place was hopping. 

Cost – For a pizza, a salad, a glass of wine (for my eating partner) and a diet Coke, we were charged $30.  I had my handy Lettuce Entertain You gift certificate, knocking the price down to $15 not including the tip.
