In January 2020, Little Madrid Tapas Café opened in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood, a small, cozy, and colorful space. The restaurant transported guests back to Old Madrid with its warm atmosphere, delicious flavors, and enticing aromas that emanated from the kitchen. With a global pandemic raging around the world, Little Madrid Tapas Café remained a steady presence in the neighborhood and soon emerged as one of the best Spanish restaurants in Chicago.
Grand Dukes Restaurant serves unique and comforting Lithuanian and eastern European cuisine in its impressive and rustic eatery. Starters such as the Lithuanian potato nachos topped with beer cheese sauce, bacon and jalapenos and the potato pancakes with sour cream and applesauce, are perfect introductions to Dukes' style of cuisine. Some of Grand Dukes Restaurant's house specialties include the pierogi dumplings with potato and onions topped with a sour cream bacon sauce, the crispy chicken Kiev filled with garlic butter and the salmon in envelope with sliced potatoes, leeks, and creamy dill sauce. Sandwiches, such as the veal wiener schnitzel with Swiss cheese on brioche, the classic Rueben and the breaded pork cutlet belly buster sandwich with garlic sauce, are customer favorites and are ideal with a European beer.
Grand Dukes Restaurant also hosts live music events every Friday and Saturday, which perfectly complements the already-merry atmosphere.
