Benito's Chicago Eatery is expected to open by month's end at 6201 15th Ave. N.W., according to Seattle Met. Run by Chicago native Benjamin Kulikowski, the establishment will sling the Windy City's most notorious eats, including Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches, and of course, deep-dish pizza.
In other news, Seattle Met reports that Ballard is scoring yet another new eatery. Beloved local chef Ethan Stowell launches Ballard Pizza Co. next week at 5107 Ballard Ave. N.W. The restaurant will serve pizza by the slice, as well as entire pies and pastas. Best of all: it will stay open until 3 a.m. on weekends.
