Bridgeport got on the Chicago map for its hardscrabble landscape and hardworking community. That idea has been the basis for South Morgan Street food destination, Bridgeport Pasty. Their savory little pies, an English staple, stuffed with a variety of veggies and meat, are hot out of the oven from the businesses storefront and food truck. The flaky crust complements the savory flavor combinations such as ratatouille and chicken pot pie. Building on community, the store has a side yard equipped with a hammock, ping-pong table and kids area. For a warm summer day or cold fall evening, a pasty hits the spot.
