Chefs often argue about the best temperature for cooking pizza, but nearly all agree it needs to have the full 360 degrees of a circle. Round out your culinary curiosity with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of wood- and coal-fired pizzas, wine, and more at Sono Wood Fired. Soft woods, exposed brick, the oak bar, and moody lighting throughout Sono Wood Fired add to the intimate ambience of the blazing, Italian wood oven on display. Sono, which either means I am or supreme nosher (or both together), offers a fresh menu of 14- to 16-inch bubbly, toasted-crust pizzas such as the soppressata diavola ($14), topped with spicy soppressata, bufala, tomatoes, charred onions, and basil, as well as white pizzas such as the prosciutto ($15), an arugula, provolone, and mozzarella matrimony. Diners looking to expand their stomach horizons can chow authentic Italian antipasta, salads, pasta, and bruschetta or sip impressive wines.

Burger Bar Chicago
Led by chef-owner John McLean, Burger Bar Chicago gives burgers just a dash of ritziness, often using uncommon toppings and patties. Read on to find out more about McLean's spin on an American classic.
- Burgers go beyond beef on a bun. Burger Bar stretches the traditional definition of a burger with patties made of lamb, veal, bison, elk, curried pork, and even turducken, the famous poultmanteau combining turkey, duck, and chicken.
- There is, of course, a burger bar. Guests can customize their own grass-fed, antibiotic-free patties with 10 choices of cheese and toppings that range from typical pickles and lettuce to fried egg and house-pickled jalapeño poppers.
- More than 100 varieties fill the beer list. Burger Bar's taps represent hometown heroes such as Revolution and farther-flung favorites such as Ommegang, Abita, and Brooklyn Brewery.
- The milkshakes are hand-spun. For an extra fee, you can add a kick of liquor to flavors such as Oreo blitz, banana Nutella, and chocolate peanut butter.
- Midwestern farms supply many of the ingredients. Whenever possible, Chef McLean and his staff use produce and proteins from local farms, including Kinnikinnick Farm in Illinois and River Valley in Wisconsin.
