PMQ Heads to Chicago

The National Restaurant Association (NRA) show starts tomorrow in Chicago, and PMQ will be there! It’s my favorite food show of the year. Not only because hundreds of new products are making their debut, dozens of educational sessions will be taking place, and tons of industry friends will be walking the show floor, but also because I love Chicago! I love it so much that I don’t even care that I had to wake up before 3:00 a.m. to make a 6:05 a.m. flight this morning. I can sleep when I get back home!

In addition to scoping out the latest and greatest products in foodservice, and discovering what’s new in online ordering for an upcoming PMQ article, I’ve already made a list of pizzerias that myself and fellow PMQ editor Tracy Morin will be fitting into our schedule.

While pizza plans have been known to change at the mere sighting of an oven through a pizzeria window, the spots we’ve slated for pizza so far include: Siena Tavern, Pizzeria Serio, Aurelio’s Pizzeria, Balena, Giordano’s, and Nellcote.

If you’re a Chicago native, or know of a new Chicago pizzeria we need to add to the list, let us know in the comments section below. Stay tuned for photos!
