In social situations, many people hesitate to take the last slice of pizza for fear of seeming selfish or seeing their future reflected in the cardboard box. Dine in the presence of destiny with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, drinks, and more at Bije’s on West Irving Park Road.
Bije’s makes pizza lovers feel at home with delicious recipes and friendly service in a laid-back neighborhood bar. Built around a pizza recipe smuggled from the marinara-soaked hills of Lucca, Italy, the menu features a mouthwatering selection of feastitudes for every appetite. Start with a Wambo Combo platter, where fried zucchini, mushrooms, cauliflower, and mozzarella sticks form a crunchy golden dream team of finger foods ($7.95), before trying a crispy, thin-crust pizza. Forged from hand-tossed dough and topped with handfuls of cheese, vegetables, and meats, each disk delights diners with a personalized collection of toppings ($11.95 for a large, up to $2 per topping). Specialty pies offer a preselected lineup of ingredients such as the fiery buffalo-wing pizza ($12.25 for a large) or Bije’s International ($16.75 for a large), a savory summit of prosciutto, mushrooms, and carmelized onions with a romano-cream sauce. Sandwich lovers rejoice at Bije’s choices of bun stuffers lined with italian beef ($5.85) and italian sausage ($5.75), while carb cravers try the house-made ravioli stuffed with meat, cheese, or spinach ($6.95).
Bije’s invites family festivities, assuaging hungry teams of tikes, and also remains intimate enough for a first date with a sports agent. Full-grown action addicts sate their athletic appetites at Bije’s full-service sports bar, where a few TVs, good company, and a big selection of brews sates hankering fans. Thursday-night karaoke (starting at 9:30) gives singers an opportunity to test the timbres and fans the freedom to jump onstage without vaulting security guards.
