In our low-key, deep-dish-style pizza war, it appears the final score is Nashville 1, Chicago 0.
- Chicago-based Gino's East opened just two years ago in the heart of Nashville's tourist district but has already closed, per the Nashville Scene and Gino's website.
Why it matters: In Nashville's increasingly crowded pizza scene, 312 Pizza Co. in Germantown has claimed ownership of the Chicago-style deep dish market.
💭 Nate's thought bubble: As an old grump, I love the abundant street parking. And as a rabid beer enthusiast, I recommend happy hour drinks at nearby Bearded Iris followed by dinner at 312.
- Watching a Cubs World Series Game 2 victory there with a bunch of Chicago natives is one of my all-time baseball fan memories.
🍕 My go-to order is the five-cheese Mrs. O'Leary.
