The Deep Dish Family Tree Project
« on: March 19, 2014, 04:35:03 PM »
Hi, everyone!

I'm working on a deep dish family tree, where Pizzeria Uno is at the root.
I'm building the branches with pizza restaurants that branched off with former employees of the previous restaurant.

Can you help me fill in the tree?  What restaurants have I missed? :chef:


This is what I have so far:

Level 1: Pizzeria Uno (formerly known as The Pizzeria and Pizzeria Riccardo)
Level 2: Lou Malnati's, Gino's East (Alice Redmond), Pizano's (Rudy Malnati Jr.), Delisi's (Helen Delisi), Louisa's ( DeGenero)
Level 3: Bartolli's (branched from Gino's East)

Should people get top billing or the names of the restaurants?  Rudy Malnati invented DD in Uno's kitchen.  I think he deserves more credit than the location he happened to be in.

Adding info to the origins and people is fine, but right now I'm just trying to build the tree of the restaurants.
I haven't settled on a design. The photo was just a screenshot from a flowchart program.

While we're speaking of family trees, does anyone have info about Rudy Malnati Sr.'s marital history and subsequent offspring?
We know that Rudy Junior was Lou's half-brother, but I haven't been able to find info beyond that about Rudy Sr.'s spouses or "baby mamas", etc.
It just seems that there might be an interesting story there, one that no one is talking about.

Since Gino's opened in 1954, a year before Due's, would you put Gino's to the first branch, too?

Gino's may be a special circumstance, considering how it was in business before Alice Redmond jumped ship at Uno and then altered the recipe.

Maybe down the road, I'll have to do one of those special dotted-line tree type deals with Gino's.

I'm focusing on the Uno tree and working my way outward,
but feel free to add any info from those cross-branches as well.
 
Heck, Burt Katz has a whole tree of his own if we fill in that info. :-)

Pequod's, Gulliver's, The Inferno, Burt's (were there others?)

In my mind, Due is the same as Uno's. It's just the second location.
