Max & Issy’s Is a New Pizza Spot Near The Paragon

August 19, 2021

Check out recently opened Max & Issy’s, a pizzeria located in the Lakeview neighborhood on Diversey Parkway. Open 5-10 p.m. daily for indoor and sidewalk dining or takeout, Max & Issy’s serves 16-inch New York–style pizzas and salads and has a stocked drink menu of beers, wine, and cocktails.

On the menu are traditional pies, like the 100% vegan red pizza, the white pizza, and the margherita pizza.

Craving something a little different? Consider ordering the Pompei Today pizza, with tomato sauce, mozzarella, serrano peppers, jalapenos, fresno peppers, banana peppers, hot giardiniera, and parmigiano-reggiano, or the Paddy Is Our Daddy Pizza, with tomato sauce, mozzarella, jowl bacon, house Italian sausage, pepperoni, and parmigiano-reggiano. Or, build your own pizza, starting at $16 per pie, or order the Apple Italiano salad, a spinach/arugula mix with apples, tomato, red onion, pistachios, fresh basil, and parmigiano-reggiano shavings with lemon honey dressing, or a house salad.

On the drink side, choose between 11 on-tap beers, 43 bottled beers, or 13 canned beers, or order a cocktail, like the grapefruit rum-based Dog Days drink or a Mimosa. If wine is more your style, choose between a full list of reds, whites, and sparkling wines.
