$10 lunch: Michigan Avenue

<b>Frankie's Fifth Floor Pizzeria</b>, 900 N. Michigan Ave.; 312-266-2500, <a href="http://www.leye.com">leye.com</a><br>

It's hard squeezing charm from a slick food-courtish restaurant in an even slicker mall. But the Sardinian pizzas (about $9) from this casual umbrellas-and-deck chairs offshoot of Frankie's Scaloppine are chewy and blistery lessons in how to spin a few smart ingredients into a satisfying lunch. Sit by the large oval window overlooking Michigan Avenue. Order the Sardinian Parmesan-Anchovy Pizza (above). Admire how many varieties of saltiness mankind has managed to cram on a small single slice of sauceless pizza. (Now take a swig of water.)
