Brando's combines all the sports-soaked trappings of a neighborhood pub or sports bar with a traditional pizzeria, serving piping-hot Chicago-style pizzas ($12/$15), stromboli ($9.50), and ricotta-rich calzones ($10.50). Build a mozzarella-stick log cabin for deep-fried settlers ($6.50), or complement the glow emitted from TVs during March Madness with a hearty handful of homemade potato chips ($5). A savory steak salad piles on blue cheese and thinly sliced flat-iron steak ($10), and the italian sausage ($8.50) or italian beef sandwich, with hot giardiniera pepper ($8), deliver Windy City standbys. Brando's also dishes out build-your-own burgers ($8, $0.50 per added topping), pastas ($9), and a full omelette ($6, $0.50 per added topping), and a breakfast menu for those who wake up early to watch soccer, cricket, and European baseball, which is also know as American tennis.
