The September Hit List: Pizza Lobo, Mama Delia, Moti Cafe, Kasama, and More


As this beautiful (weather-wise) yet bizarre (everything else-wise) summer gives way to fall, we’re counting on several more weeks of patio season—but that’s not all our beloved local restaurants have up their sleeves.

A celebrated chef couple opened modern Filipino restaurant and bakery Kasama to glowing reviews; quirky cocktail bar The Sixth debuted an equally quirky “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids!” pop-up; favorite West Loop pizza installation Pizza Lobo gets a permanent home in Logan Square, with a sprawling patio. There are also rib tips for South Side barbecue purists, square pizza slices for tavern-style purists, and so much more in this month’s Hit List. Dig in.
