Czech Restaurants: Chicago

Well, I posted the other day all the Czech bakeries that can be found in the Chicago Metropolitan area, so I felt inclined to do the same with czech restaurants in Chicago. Most Czech restaurants in Chicago are not located in the downtown area, but rather just west in the cities of Berwyn, Cicero, and Downers Grove areas. That being said there are several restaurants that I did not list that fall under the umbrella of serving Eastern European cuisine which includes bohemian food, German, Hungarian, and Polish. All such food is very tasty but I wanted to keep my list strictly refined to Czech restaurants. Of this list I have only visited the Czech Plaza, Bohemian Crystal, and the Riverside Restaurant to date. You really cannot go wrong with any of those picks. I would rank Riverside restaurant as one of the best buys for the eating some good old fashioned Czech food. The lunch spread is unbelievable as the menu throws everything but the kitchen sink at you. A “meal” will encompass everything from bohemain rye bread, liver dumpling soup, dumplings, roast pork, and a kolacky with coffee to finish up. How is that for a value meal?
