Alley innovation now includes restaurants
A new restaurant called Pizza Friendly Pizza is serving Sicilian-style slice from an alley in Ukrainian Village. This weekend we grabbed a bite to eat at Goddess & The Grocer’s patio that was very recently an alley (pictured above). I’m reminded of a plan to evolve Chicago’s alleys into creative spaces. While some alleys are smelly no-go zones, even a few upgrades to others could really improve a neighborhood. Amsterdam, after all, has found myriad uses for its alleys.
