Day 26, 2016: Gino's East (Dallas, TX)



DAY 26: OCTOBER 26th, 2016

LOCATION: Gino's East (10310 Lombardy Ln, Dallas, TX 75220)

GUEST(S): Robin Rothman

ORDER: 3 slices of a Medium Thin crust with BBQ brisket, onion, red pepper

Deep dish in the heart of Texas. Gino’s East, a Chicago pizza institution, has expanded into Dallas and beyond. Offering a menu of signature items including deep dish and thin-crust pizza as well as a vast array of beverages, Gino’s East combines all the features of a family-friendly restaurant with all the perks of a spacious sports bar. Opt for the locally sourced brisket topping for a taste of Texas on your Chicago pie, but expect the antithesis of a “quick slice” as the high quality ingredients and high quantity of them take upwards of an hour to bake. While it may cost more in time and price, Gino’s top notch service caters patiently to every need, enabling patrons to enjoy comfort food in a comfortable fashion. They will not only let you draw on the walls while you wait but they encourage it. You can literally leave your mark on Gino’s East, while the pizza figuratively leaves its mark on you.

1. Robin Rothman and went to a Chicago style pizzeria on the night of the second game of the World Series featuring the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians.  The Cubs won the game to tie the series at 1-1 heading back to Chicago.

2. Robin Rothman and I visited the site of the Kennedy assassination in Dealey Plaza, Dallas. The museum on the sixth floor of the building formerly known as the Texas School Book Depository is an extraordinary experience. We did the audio tour and were transported back to the life and times of JFK that eerily puts the listener in the frame of mind of the exact events leading up to the shots and the aftermath. It was a very sobering experience but I recommend it if you are in Dallas.
