Deal of the day . . .
At Frasca's, every Wednesday, if you buy one pizza, you get the second one free.
Relaxed neighborhood eatery Frasca Pizzeria and Wine Bar (3358 N. Paulina St., 773-248-5222) is much fancier than your average pizza parlor, but they’re also not offering your average pies.
You’ll find premium toppings on their thin-crust specialties like the Rustica (with diced prosciutto, oven dried tomatoes, basil pesto, smoked provolone), shrimp + pancetta (tomato sauce, mozzarella, wood fired red onions, evoo) and Caponata (tomato sauce, eggplant, goat cheese, red peppers, shrooms and artichokes). Or, if you’re in a creative mood, they’ll even let you build your own with fennel sausage, homemade mozzarella, Italian anchovies, caramelized onions, roasted mushrooms and other toppings.
But the best thing about Wednesday nights here is that if you buy one pizza, you get the second one at no cost. Woo hoo!
Or, if you’ve got more of a sweet tooth this evening, you might want to make your way to the Lincoln Square location of Provenance Food & Wine (2312 W. Leland Ave., 773-784-2314) for an offbeat chocolate tasting by non other than Vosges Haut Chocolat. They’re sampling three Vosges cocoa flavors and also their newest exotic candy bar, the Mo’s Bacon Bar. The “Vosges Haut Chocolat Cocoa & ...Bacon?!” event happens 5-7pm and it’s free.
