Gaby's Express

I've had nothing but good food at Gaby's Express. Their chicken soup is yummy and the hummus divine. I didn't like the baba ganoush, though, the roasted eggplant flavor was too strong.

Chicago Style Pizza?

As divefan suggested, search for chicago pizza and you'll find an article that makes 2 suggestions. I haven't been to either of those joints, because they are too far away.

I can recommend Dino's in North Hollywood. It's not chicago style, but it's a decent substitute. Just don't use the parm cheese shakers.

Intelligentsia Coffee...boring, sanitized & oh so precious

I disagree about Intelligentsia, but coffee is such a particular thing... to each his/her own :)

I heard they are bringing an Italian barista (or would that be baristo?) for the new cafe opening next to Ugo's in Culver City. Perhaps you will finally have your Italian coffee. No word on an opening date yet.
