Roberta’s Returns for Pizza Pop-Up in Chicago

Roberta’s brings its signature Neapolitan style pies to Chicago at Dusek’s Board & Beer for a delicious, one-weekend-only pop-up experience. A portion of the proceeds from the pop-up sales will be donated to GirlForward, a non-profit organization that creates a community of support dedicated to creating and enhancing opportunities for girls who have been displaced by conflict and persecution.

Diners can grab a slice of the action on Friday and Saturday evenings and during Sunday brunch by lining up at Dusek’s 18th Street entrance for in-house dining and/or takeaway while supplies last. During the three-day pop-up, Chicagoans can get a taste of the best ‘za the East coast has to offer with a limited-time menu of hand-tossed pizzas fired in Dusek’s two 800-plus degree white oak wood-burning ovens. Full menu to come soon.

“We’re thrilled to invite our friends at Roberta’s back into Dusek’s for a second pop-up,” says Michael Galen, executive chef at Dusek’s Board & Beer. “The first takeover back in 2017 was such a huge success, we couldn’t wait to do it again, but even bigger and better. Chicagoans and New Yorkers are both so passionate about pizza and we’re looking forward to treating our guests at Dusek’s once again to those delicious Roberta’s pies.” 

“We’re so excited to be back in Chicago to partner with Chef Galen and his team. The Windy City gave us such a warm welcome the first time we were here and we’re thankful for the opportunity to introduce Roberta’s to new fans while serving longtime supporters,” says Roberta’s co-owner Brandon Hoy.

Since nothing pairs better with pizza than beer, guests can wash down all the doughy goodness with pours from Dusek’s selection of 24 rotating craft beers on tap. The restaurant’s dining room will still be open for regular dinner service as usual throughout the weekend pizza pop-up. Live updates on pizza availability will be posted on Dusek’s Facebook page here.
