This past April we announced that Hook & Master, a new Chicago-style pizzeria and tiki lounge would be coming to Olde Kensington, now it looks like the opening date has finally arrived. The newest concept is from James Beard Award-Winning and Iron Chef Jose Garces will be open for take out on October 20th with dine-in slated to start on Friday October 29th.
Located on the corner of Second and Master Streets (1361 N Second Street), Hook & Master merges a traditional Chicago-style pizzeria with a tiki-inspired lounge to create a unique and elevated dining experience. In partnership with Chef Steven Seibel, Hook & Master’s menu features a variety of pizzas – from thin and crispy Tavern-Style pizza that Chef Garces grew up eating in Chicago, to the more traditional Chicago Pan Style Pizza, along with an assortment of Brooklyn style pies. Along with the pizza offerings, menu highlights include antipasti-style seafood dishes and finely curated tiki-inspired cocktails, creating the ultimate unique dining experience.
