Bob’s Pizza will open its fourth location at 1518 E. Harper Court in the space formerly operated by Native Foods. The chain is known for its pickle pizza but also offers traditional staples such as pepperoni, Margherita and sausage.
The Hyde Park menu will feature exclusive items like the “Bob Kim” pizza with bacon, ssam sauce, shredded cabbage, fried garlic and scallions. This culinary collaboration with Won Kim, the executive chef at Korean-Polish restaurant Kimski is super tasty. Kimski also designed murals inside the Harper Court location.
Other Hyde Park exclusives include two new pizzas — a chicken sausage pie and a meatball pie — and two appetizers, crispy Brussels sprouts and baked goat cheese.
“Pizzas often deal with a lot of pork products … so the two new pizzas I added are different proteins, which helps with people that may not even eat pork,” executive chef Matthew Wilde said.
The Hyde Park Bob’s will seat 66 people inside, and a 60-person patio is set to open in the spring. The location will also feature a full bar. It will be open 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday. Grand opening details will be announced on Bob’s website: www.famousbobspizza.com
