Lenny Rago from Panino’s Pizzeria in Chicago


Lenny Rago has been working in professional kitchens since he was 14. Now in his 50s, the Chicago native has built Panino’s into a pizza powerhouse, creating nearly a half dozen types of pie at three different locations. We met up with him at his Evanston location, where he showed off a classic Chicago tavern style, as well as a preview of his deep-dish, which will be launching in the new year.
