New Orleans-based Naked Pizza has baked up a healthier spin on pizza for carryout and delivery, and three first-time restaurant owners have teamed up to franchise the concept in Chicago. Naked Pizza's first Chicago location is due to open May 30 at 953 W. Diversey Pkwy. in Lincoln Park. It's one of eight to ten locations in the plans for the Chicago area within the next several years, said Naked Pizza Chicago partner Aaron Leavitt.  The pizzeria's signature crust combines 10 different grains plus probiotics, and thanks to skim-milk mozzarella, pies pack less fat and calories than most.

Burger review: Fatty's Burgers & More 2665 N. Clark St. 773-248-3288 Rating: ! ½ (out of four) According to popular wisdom, everything is bigger in Texas. Fatty's Burgers & More, a Texas-bred operation that recently set up shop in Chicago (the creator's brother helms the Lincoln Park location), certainly confirmed this for fact for The Great Burgerelli. The chain's piece de resistance is The Lineman ($13.99), a preposterously large full-pound cheeseburger that intimidated even this esteemed burger seeker.

The Clybourn Corridor, aka the Forever 21-Apple Store-Whole Foods Triangle, is poised to become even more retail-licious in the coming year. Target, Nordstrom Rack, Sephora, Anthropologie and others have plans to move in soon, and all those shopping sprees are going to require some sustenance. Next time you find yourself running errands down this dense strip, save room on your credit cards for bites at these old standbys and new-to-the-'hood eateries, located further north along Clybourn closer to Fullerton Avenue.

Burger review: Smashburger 2031 N. Clybourn Ave. 312-800-9010 Rating:  !!! (out of four) One might call opening another burger joint a mere block away from Five Guys Burgers and Fries risky, audacious … even arrogant. Doing so would require, as they would say south of the border in Mexico where I, The Great Burgerelli, just returned from a lovely hamburger holiday, "cojones muy grandes. " That is precisely what the fine folks behind Smashburger have done with their first Chicago location, just a short walk north from Five Guys in Lincoln Park's Clybourn corridor.

Mini-review: Tommy Knuckles Tavern & Lounge 433 W. Diversey Parkway 773-248-3230 Rating:  !! (out of four): Give it some time No, Tommy Knuckles isn't a dude. According to owners, the name of this less-than-a-month-old Lincoln Park bar refers to a slang term for someone who is "extremely awesome or certifiably nuts. " It's a bold name, and along with the bar's fist logo, it's almost confrontational. But co-owner Tyrrell Tomlin said the bar should be a laid-back place to hang in Lincoln Park, down to the black-and-white portraits on the walls that are meant to add a dose of nostalgia.

Stella Barra 1954 N. Halsted St. 773-634-4101 Rating: !!! 1/2 (out of 4) Push . I've heard a lot of great chefs say it. Push through the pain. Push forward. Push past your limits. Nothing is impossible if you push. The difference between the successful chef and the pedestrian line cook, or so it appears, is returning a force just a little harder than the force that comes at you, aka pushing. "Push" is also what's tattooed on the right wrist of Jeff Mahin, the executive chef partner behind Stella Barra, a new pizzeria in Lincoln Park.

After five years of providing Lincoln Park with sand, indoor bags games and a venue in which to chug an entire fishbowl of brightly colored booze, Uncle Fatty's Rum Resort will close its doors May 4. Co-owner Brian Galati today announced that he and his partners will expand next-door Headquarters Beercade , which they also run, into the space currently occupied by Uncle Fatty's. "It was near and dear to our hearts," Galati said. "[Uncle Fatty's] was a concept everybody counted out in the beginning and here we are five years later.
