The Gino's East story begins in 1966 when two taxi drivers and a friend decided to open a pizzeria on Superior Street, near Michigan Ave. The original Gino's East became an instant legend with local Chicagoans, national celebrities, and visitors from around the world.

Many may know our new home as the former Michael Jordan's Restaurant or LaSalle Power Co, but not many realize that this building once powered Chicago's often forgotten cable car system. The building, designated as a Chicago landmark in 2001, was built in 1887 as The LaSalle Street Cable Car Powerhouse. According to the City of Chicago's official website, it was built by The North Chicago Street Railroad Company, "which at its peak in the 1890s was the largest in the country, operating thousands of cable cars over 82 miles of track...[and] brought approximately 100,000 workers into downtown Chicago each day."
