Growing up on Chicago’s North Side I fondly remember walking with my dad down to the street corner to get an Italian Beef or Chicago Dog. We’d walk with our brown paper bags and setup to eat on a local park bench. Once a week we’d visit a friend of my dad at his Italian restaurant on Irving Park, who would sit and tell stories from when they were kids.
On the weekends my grandfather would make his Chicago Style Cracker Crust Pizza. He would teach me how to roll the dough and the difference between fresh & dry herbs. The undeniable passion for flavor and authentic ingredients were part of those memories and what we are carrying forward to our friends in Arizona. Our dogs are true Vienna Beef served in S. Rosen’s Poppyseed Buns from Alpha Bakery. We fly Eli’s Cheesecakes to the store each week. The Italian sausage and meatballs that fill our Chicago baked hoagies are produced by Fontanini, a Chicago landmark. As for the pizza...that’s ours, made here in Arizona, fresh every day. A Chicago family recipe shared with our family in Arizona.
Our focus with the Half Moon Windy City is to capture some of the essense of the Chicago through the food, the design of the restaurant and the excitement of the sports that I grew up with. I hope you enjoy the midwest hospitality experience!
