Giordano’s Rumored To Take Over Ann Sather Space


Giordano’s Rumored To Take Over Ann Sather Space

It sounds like Giordano’s Pizza has signed a lease for the space that now occupies Ann Sather Restaurant. The Swedish restaurant is set to close on January 5, 2014. Though it is sad to see such a dining tradition end in Andersonville, Giordano’s has much Chicago tradition as well.

Started in 1974 by Italian immigrants Efren and Joseph Boglio on the south side of Chicago, the eatery began to flourish. This is due in large part to the famous stuffed pizza pie which has become the signature order at all the locations. Currently the chain he’s over 40 locales in and around Chicago plus 3 in the Orlando, Florida area. According to their website, “Giordano’s has been acclaimed “Chicago’s Best Pizza” by NBC, CBS Chicago, New York Times, Chicago Magazine, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Eater, Home & Garden Magazine, Concierge Preferred and more!”.

Though Giordano’s is undoubtedly a successful institution in Chicago, some do worry about the future of the Swedish tradition in the neighborhood with the loss of Ann Sather restaurant here.
