Cooking Delicious Food Since 1970

Branko Podrumedzic - The Man Behind The Scenes

With a history spanning over three decades, Little Bucharest has opened with 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 Romanian 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 owner Branko Podrumedic. “The bistro will present Romanian flavors in an approachable way to appeal to more of a mainstream audience.

We are a family owned restaurant on the Northside Chicago area (Irving Park community area).

We serve Eastern European, Mediterranean and American food.

We serve fresh, wholesome homemade food and we keep a tight, family-like relationship with all our customers. People seem to love the mood our restaurant sets and that can be seen on Yelp.

On Sundays, we roast a pig or lamb on a spit which is rapidly gaining traction with all the food lovers nearby. When you order yours, do not forget to ask for the free dessert that comes with any full priced pig or lamb roast entree.

People from all over the city are stopping by to enjoy our unique take on ethnic food, to take pictures – be it with our violinist, the live bands, or the always welcoming Branko (the restaurant owner) and to simply enjoy each other’s company in a relaxing, friendly ambiance.

Over the many years since we have opened our business, we have also organized numerous concerts and festivals featuring famous artists. We also host all kinds of live music in our restaurant, including our beloved violinist.
