River North

About This Location

For 50 years, the original Gino’s East has been offering the best deep dish pizza experience in Chicago. Since we opened our doors in 1966, we’ve shared millions of our signature golden-crust Chicago-style pizzas with Chicagoans, celebrities, and visitors from all over the world. Don’t believe us? The writing is on the walls! We’re world-famous for our tradition of letting all of our customers leave their mark on our restaurant. Come by and leave some graffiti, if you can find a spot, and see if you can find it next year!

Gino’s East River North is home to Gino’s Brewing Company and offers signature craft brews that pair perfectly with our legendary deep dish pizza. And don’t forget to bring your markers and leave your mark on our 2nd floor graffiti zones! Gino’s East River North is also home to The Comedy Bar. Located on the 3rd floor, shows run Wednesday-Saturday. Buy advance tickets or ask your server for reservations.

Many may know our new home as the former Michael Jordan’s Restaurant or LaSalle Power Co, but not many realize that this building once powered Chicago’s often forgotten cable car system. The building, designated as a Chicago landmark in 2001, was built in 1887 as The LaSalle Street Cable Car Powerhouse. According to the City of Chicago’s official website, it was built by The North Chicago Street Railroad Company, “which at its peak in the 1890s was the largest in the country, operating thousands of cable cars over 82 miles of track…[and] brought approximately 100,000 workers into downtown Chicago each day.”
