Just in time for Chicago’s al fresco dining season, Lou Malnati’s will offer great outdoor dining space in Lincoln Square.
In 1971, Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria (www.LouMalnatis.com) opened their first restaurant on Lincoln Avenue in Lincolnwood. On Monday, May 4, the family owned business will open their 41st location just four miles down the road at 4340 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago’s iconic Lincoln Square/North Center community. There will be a ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony on Wednesday, May 6 at 1:00pm.
“We are pleased to bring Chicago’s best deep dish pizza to the Lincoln Square and North Center neighborhoods,” said Marc Malnati, owner of Lou Malnati’s. “Our newest location puts us in the heart of a vibrant neighborhood and we are excited to be part of the community. This also fills a void we’ve had between our Lincolnwood and Lincoln Park service areas for far too long.”
The décor consists of muted blues, greens and oranges and the neon sign out front evokes a retro atmosphere reminiscent of the 1950’s & 1960’s. Inside, a wall of windows and a “living wall” filled with plants, brings the feel of the outdoors into the restaurant year round while retractable glass doors allow for the dining room to open up onto a seasonal patio. The large outdoor area will allow patrons to enjoy Chicago’s summer days and evenings.
Located just south of the Old Town School of Folk Music, Sulzer Library and Welles Park, the newest Lou Malnati’s will be a key member of the Lincoln Square and North Center communities. As part of the company’s ongoing commitment to the Chicagoland area, this location will offer a variety of programs to support qualifying local charities and schools.
The new location will add 100+ jobs to the community. It will seat 172 people. Carryout, delivery and catering services will also be offered.
Lou Malnati’s is a family-owned company with 41 locations in the Chicago area. They have grown by stressing consistency in quality, service and food which is offered in a unique environment by a staff that is committed to one another, their customers and their community.
