As Leo’s signature dish, calamari pops up many times throughout the restaurant's menu: as a golden-fried appetizer, entangled in seafood pasta with clams and mussels, or paired with shrimp under a covering of marinara sauce. Squid is not the only specialty, however. A large part of the menu is devoted to Sicilian- and Neapolitan-style pizzas. One popular version is the Grandma's pizza (focaccia di nonna) with crushed san marzano tomatoes, fresh garlic, tuscan olive oil, and housemade mozzarella. To expand on the Mediterranean theme, the kitchen also cooks a few Greek dishes, including pork souvlaki and Greek-style pasta, which is just noodles shaped like busts of Aristotle.
It's every dog owner's responsibility to clean up after his or her pet. Though that's easy to keep up with on walks, dogs can often transform backyards into danger zones where any step could end up a mess. That's where Doo Care's team comes in. The licensed, bonded, and insured crew pulls up in the company's distinctive green-and-white trucks to clear out poop wherever it may hide in owners' lawns. They can perform this duty as often as twice a week or make one-time visits to prepare yards for a party or a date with the cute garden across the street.
Believers that exercise is easier and more fun when bolstered by support and accountability, instructors at Lincoln Park's friendly Studio Fit Chicago helm a variety of group classes for women, tailoring them to meet the unique needs of the female physique.
