I just found this forum and am SO glad it exists. My name is Michael and I am a Chicago deep dish addict. I lived in Chicago for many years and got hooked on regular visits to Giordano's, Gino's East, Malnati's, and Eduardo's. Now I live in Northern Virginia and miss the stuff dearly. There are plenty of great places for other types of pizza here in the DC area. But nobody has nailed authentic Chicago deep dish. We have a few frauds like the Uno chain and that's about it.
