Lou Malnati's is tentatively scheduled to open Monday, Feb. 10 for dinner service at 1038 Lake St. in downtown Oak Park, a spokesperson wrote in an email Monday. 

The restaurant will start serving lunch about two weeks after the opening.

Slated to open last fall, Lou Malnati's wrote in a tweet back in October, "We had delays with some other construction projects we were working on and were not able to start in Oak Park as planned."

Lou Malnati's received a bit of national acclaim in 2013, when lifestyle publication Thrillist included their deep-dish pizza in its list of “the 33 best in the whole damn country.” 

Thrillist's Matt Lynch wrote that while New Yorkers argue that deep-dish "isn't pizza," and that his brother might disown him for picking Lou's over Giordano's, "I like to think a tomato-topped slice with just the right amount (in this case, the right amount is a lot) of cheese and a whole damn layer of sausage can heal all disputes. 

"Oh, also it's on "buttercrust". Just whisper it to yourself. Buttercrust."
