I’ll have to try Burt’s Place at some point. There just isn’t a lot of top-quality Chicago-style pizza up here on the North Shore, aside from the original Lou Malnati’s in Lincolnwood, which is in a class of its own.
The author of the column, by the way, was referring to the original Pizzeria Due, one block north of the original Pizzeria Uno. Both sell the same pizzas. Neither has anything to do with the franchise Pizzeria Uno’s in other cities. They’re probably still better than the "Chicago-style" pizza available elsewhere around the country, but I think for the best authentic Chicago pizza they are no longer the place to go. I’ve heard good things about Gino’s East, though I wasn’t impressed the one time I ate there years ago. So for now, it’s Lou Malnati’s in Lincolnwood (and not their other locations in Chicagoland) when I want the best Chicago-style pizza. It’s almost as good as Pizzeria Uno and Due were 25 years ago.
