From Vito and Nick’s in Ashburn to Pat’s Pizza in Lincoln Park, it seems every neighborhood has its favored thin-crust pie. And for 48 years, Bridgeport’s preference has been for Phil’s. Unfortunately, in 2008, it closed its original wood-paneled spot on Halsted, leaving those years of hard-earned personality behind for a boring dining room a few blocks away. Luckily, the owners took their old-school Blodgett ovens with them, and the crispy exterior crust, chewy interior crust and hunks of fennel-flecked sausage honor the tasty tradition of the original.
