Have heard about this place before and my friends wanted to go to watch the Bear’s game last Sunday so I thought what a great opportunity to check the place out.
Walk in just a bit after it opened and it was not very packed (though it did fill up later). The quality is quite nice in my opinion. High ceilings with wooden beams. A nice looking bar, plenty of seating. A very “hip” place if you will.
The service was great. Our waitress was awesome and put up with us for many hours when we were there for the game, and was always nearby.
The selection was decent. They had some house beers on and a few guest beers (both selections were pretty solid). I was very happy to try (over and over again) their collaboration beer with Half Acre that had just been put on tap that day.
The food was great. The chips and guacamole was a bit lackluster (they need better chips) but the pizza was pretty damn good.
The price was average and actually decent for Chicago. I will for sure visit this place in the future.

Piece is a must visit for out of towners. Everyone has to get over the idea that all Chicagoans only eat is deep dish. While you won't find an extensive beer list here you will find a small, but great selection of Piece brews. They have their regulars / year rounds (4-6) with a small rotation of seasonals and limited releases (2-3 beers).
It's always busy, but if you go for an early or late dinner then getting a table shouldn't be a problem. Avoid this place 5pm-8pm or you can put your name in and walk around Wicker Park while you wait. There are plenty of bars to get a beer at while you wait an unreasonably long time.
The beers are above average with a few standing out against others. Most of the brews are of the Belgian style (not my cup of tea), but they do some great stouts and porters. My personal favorite, Flatiron is a solid oatmeal stout with some chocolate notes.
The pizza is what really sets this place apart. Do not order a pepperoni and cheese with red sauce. It's a great pizza, but you have so many other options here that you're doing yourself a disservice. We always order the white pizza with mashed potatoes and bacon. Delicious.
Piece is a great spot for game days and I'd suggest going early then bar hopping in Wicker Park or down Division (a few blocks south) for a great sampling of Chicago night life.
