Although Joe Maddon is no longer with the Chicago Cubs, his Wrigleyville restaurant, Maddon’s Post, inspired by James Beard Award-winning Chef/Partner Tony Mantuano (Spiaggia, Café Spiaggia, River Roast, Top Chef Masters Season 2), is alive and well.
The Italian and Polish themed restaurant serves up a mean plate of pierogies and lots more. Its mission is to celebrate the simple and give a nod to their family’s favorite recipes
Now fans of Maddon–who brought the first World Series Championship to the Chicago Cubs in 108 years–can express their gratitude to Joe at his restaurant.
Drop him a line, express your thanks, share a favorite memory, wish him well or just say goodbye at the newly created mail station inside the restaurant.
According to Maddon’s Post Director of Operations Tara Zavagnin “It’s business as usual and the restaurant and bar will continue to be all that Joe and Chef Tony Mantuano envisioned – a home base for welcoming hospitality and incredibly honest food, including some of their personal family recipes and a place to hang out and celebrate Joe’s unforgettable contributions to the world’s greatest baseball fans in one of the best cities in America.”
So, stop by–if you’re in the mood–and relive that special moment in history–that hopefully won’t take another 108 years to repeat.
And make sure to try those pierogies.
