Pizza Barra, Rich Labriola's latest restaurant, hit the Oak Brook Promenade (3011 Butterfield Rd.) today at 4:00 p.m. Featuring a menu from Chris Macchia (The Florentine, Coco Pazzo), Pizza Barra will attempt to satisfy a wide variety of pizza lovers with their Chicago thin crust, pan-style and coal-fired "Neapolitan-ish" pies that feature a ciabatta-like crust.

The new pizza spot, which stretches across 8,500 square-feet, is a stone's throw from Labriola's café in the same promenade. Available pizzas include an artisan shellfish (frutti di mare), a Chicago-style thin crust featuring Italian beef (Mitch's Italian beef) and a deep dish Pizza Barra supreme (which includes pepperoni, olives, mushrooms and more). Pizzas either go into coal-burning ovens (artisanal) or a deck oven (pan and thin crust) in the "exhibition pizza kitchen."
