Chicago is getting an iconic New York City pizzeria in two days. Paulie Gee's, the Brooklyn icon spawned in the Greenpoint neighborhood, is unveiling its highly-anticipated Logan Square location on Thursday, the Tribune reports and store owner Derrick Tung confirms.

Expect some of the most unique toppings Chicago has seen, on wood-fired New York-style pies, cooked in two Stefano Ferrera ovens imported from Napoli, Italy. The full menu, which includes many of the creatively-named pizzas from the New York locations as well as surprises for Chicago such as square-cut Detroit-inspired slices ("Logan Squares") and two "secret" pizzas, is available here.

The large open space at 2451 N. Milwaukee Ave. seats 80 and has a bar. Antique-looking wood tables and chairs fill the dining room, which is outfitted with exposed brick walls, dim industrial lighting, and the pizza ovens on full display in the rear. Take a look around in the photos below.
