After about a year and a half of operating out of a ghost kitchen in Logan Square, a pandemic-born concept realized by Robert Maleski has found itself a more permanent home. Milly’s Pizza in the Pan will operate out of its very own storefront at 1005 W. Argyle St. starting in mid-February.

Maleski made the announcement over Milly’s social media page at the end of December, writing, “Today we acquired the keys to our brick and mortar location in Uptown. I’m sad to say that we will be leaving Logan Square and relocating to Uptown(1005 Argyle St). We are shooting for an opening date in mid February of 2022. This has been a process that has been in the making for some time. I’m excited about the next chapter.” The post notes Milly’s will continue operating as a ghost kitchen through January.

According to Block Club Chicago, who first reported on the story, the Uptown storefront will continue providing pickup and delivery, while the dining room will seat about 20 and give patrons the chance to bite down into ‘za straight from the oven. There, Milly’s will be in good company, setting up shop next door to Don Pablo’s.

Milly’s pays tribute to Maleksi’s grandmother, who taught him to cook, and to Burt Katz, the restaurateur whose Chicago pan-style pies were the inspiration for Maleski’s pizza. You can find an array of pies on the menu with topical names like Clickbait, Covfeefee, and You Do You.

Find Milly’s on social media to keep up with the move.
