    Does anybody have any information about this place?
    We really liked it since it opened. It is high quality thin crust pizza, with some great salads.
    However, it has been closed for about two weeks, with paper in the windows.
    Voice mail to the place states it will re-open, but it also seems like the "Robert's" sign has been removed from the windows.
    I would hate to see this place close.

    That would be a shame, since it was pretty good. That location may be snake-bit for restaurants if that's true...

    Yes, previously it was Flour and Stone.

    We thought that place closed due to an overall very average product.

    Average pizza doesn't do it in a neighborhood where classic Chicago pizza is no more than about 15 minute away.

    Robert's was (hopefully "is") very good though. Many nights, we deliberately chose their stuff over the more well known places. It wasn't simply our choice for convenience. We like(d) their pizza.

    Serious owner dispute, w/ lawsuit purportedly filed today. Garvey, the namesake, is the plaintiff and said he hopes to reopen (or recover damages for his lost optimism). The partner/Defendant was an owner of the preceding pizza place in the space, Flour & Stone.

    At least this town has a deep bench when it comes to pizza.

    Thanks for that update.
    There are very good reasons that Robert's was successful and Flour and Stone was not.
    It is shame that F&S is still haunting that location.

    That's a shame. I hope this is either resolved or Roberts opens up somewhere else soon. It had become my favorite thin crust pizza shop in the city.

    I confess to being a beneficiary of both. Tempers are bound to flare up when you're chasing LTH accolades!
    When you're done writing briefs over partnership disputes, pizza places are almost all that's left open.

    Same here. I've got a few pending right now, with partners fighting over their share of businesses. Luckily, my clients have kept the businesses open.
