redFLAME Opens Tonight

New Neighborhood Pizzeria Utilizes a Two Step, Two Flame Process

redFLAME will open tonight, December 15, in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. The cozy and casual 60-seat pizzeria incorporates a two step, two flame process into every 14-inch pie.

At redFLAME, the approach to preparing a great pizza is from the bottom up. Each pizza is cooked twice: first, the dough is grilled. Then, the pizza is placed under a flame, concentrating the heat on the toppings.

There are over 15 pizzas to choose from on the menu, including both “red flame” (housemade red sauce, mozzarella and romano) and “white flame” (brushed with garlic oil, mozzarella, ricotta, romano cheese, oregano, basil and black pepper) selections. Highlights of the pizzeria menu include “The Big Mart” named after founder Marty Gallagher (housemade Italian sausage and pepperoni), “The Southside” (Italian beef with hot giardiniera and chili oil), “Pizza ala Rosalia” (pesto, artichoke hearts, shrimp and roasted garlic), “Wild Shrooms” (wild mushrooms, thyme and whipped roasted garlic goat cheese), “The Dakota” (chicken, rosemary and sliced potato) and “Prosciutto” (sliced prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, basil and extra virgin olive oil). redFLAME makes their dough, sauce, Italian sausage, Italian beef and giardiniera in house and utilizes locally sourced products. Specialty pizzas will be introduced weekly and an herb garden will provide fragrant seasonings once the outdoor dining area (seats 20) opens in the Spring of 2011.

In addition to pizza, redFLAME offers appetizers (the white diablo, bruschetta trio, sausage and peppers), salads (mixed greens, ceasar, caprese), sandwiches (Italian beef, Mama B’s meatball) and sweets (s’mores, chocolate and strawberry “pizza”). The complete menu is outlined below.

A wine wall, holding over 500 bottles, showcases the many approachable selections that pair perfectly with pizza. All wines by the bottle (over 40) are priced under $40 and a handful are offered below $20. Craft brews (eight on draft) are an important element at redFLAME, where drinks are served from the century-old, originalmahogany bar.

redFLAME is open Tuesday-Thursday from 5:00pm-11:00pm and Friday 5:00pm-Midnight. Lunch, dinner and drinks are offered on Saturday from 12:00pm-Midnight and Sunday 12:00pm-10pm. Table reservations are accepted for parties of six or larger. Complimentary parking is available after 7:00pm at the nearby PNC bank. Staying in? redFLAME has carry-out service for those who prefer pizza at home.
