Restaurant Sarajevo

There are salads and fried calamari and sliced chicken breast on this menu, but if you’re ordering the right things, you’re actually hitting only three foods: bread, three housemade varieties of which arrive at the beginning of the meal; cheese, whether in the form of the Bosnian feta or in the mild (but highly addictive) three-cheese spread that comes with the bread; and meat, from succulent housemade sausages to thinly sliced veal.

So...this is a spot I stumbled upon on a random Friday night with zero plans. I was in Lincoln Square and wanted to try something new and after a quick sears for good restaurants (positive reviews) that I hadn't been to, came across restaurant Sarajevo. We decided to check it out and were pleased with the friendly owner. I think we were the only ones not wrapped up in a cubs playoff game so the restaurant was pretty quiet (read: we were the only ones there) and the owner was so excited when we arrived.

The charming part of this restaurant: imagine if your friend with European immigrant parents invited you over for dinner. Decor feels like a family dining room, you'll be told not to fill up on bread when the bread basket arrives, and you'll be given a hard time when you don't finish your huge serving of sausages, pasta, or anything else you might order. And, if you behave, at the end of your meal, the owner will tell you that he's sad that you're leaving and encourage you to come back any time. The hospitality and wonderful home-cooked food will definitely have me coming back for more.
