We were a few months off with our initial estimation of State Street Pizza Company being ready to open back in September, as the takeout-friendly resto finally opened its doors officially last week. Owner Andrew Espinosa told Dish that he’s hoping the New York-style pizza will draw crowds from the surrounding River North bars. (Maybe patrons totally sick of tacos?)

The menu’s straightforward — just about the most exciting topping is goat cheese — but they’re committed to top-notch ingredients. Plus, the menu’s jazzed up with witticisms like the “It’s For My Girlfriend” pizza (spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, california goat cheese, and mozzarella on a whole wheat crust) which would get our inner feminist’s undies in a bunch were it not for the fact that the dudebros ordering it will probably welcome the built-in cop out. Read on for the whole menu.
