According to a social media post from the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce, Dimo’s Pizza, the popular Wrigleyville pizzeria, will expand to 4647 N. Lincoln Avenue, taking over the site that last housed Pasta Passion. An opening date for the third Dimo’s Pizza has not been announced, but the social media post notes signage has been posted at the address.
Dimo’s Pizza first opened in Wrigleyville, although in 2008, when the shop debuted, it was known as Ian’s Pizza. In 2012, given the opportunity to franchise, founder Dimitri Syrkin-Nikolau chose to rebrand the company as Dimo’s rather than join the franchise. Today, Dimo’s Pizza also operates a Wicker Park location, which is about three times the size of the original and features a build-your-own salad bar, vegan pizza by the slice, craft beer, and a stage for live music.
For the Dimo’s team, pizza is a “crispy, chewy, edible passion.” Entering their ‘alternate pizzaverse’ means stumbling across pies named things like Flying Spaghetti Monster, Chicken and Waffle, and Pep 2.0: Electric Boogaloo. The Cuban features slow roasted pork, tangy bread-n-butter pickles, prosciutto, swiss cheese, and a mojo dijonnaise guaranteed to ‘rock your world,’ while The Guero boasts tortilla chips, beef, salsa verde, and a cheddar ‘slice of insanity.’
