With a history spanning over three decades, Little Bucharest Bistro has a new face in Chicago's Old Irving Park area. Originally opened in 1970 and closed in 2004, the new Little Bucharest, which translates to "Little Paris of the East", blends a touch of Eastern European heritage with American contemporary fare in a vibrant and modern atmosphere."I wanted to bring the signature high-energy vibe of the old Little Bucharest into a new setting," says restaurateur Branko Podrumedic. "The bistro will present Eastern European flavors in an approachable way to appeal to a more diverse yet discriminate audience." Little Bucharest is a must stop on any visit to Chicago.
