Beer, Schnitzel and Sexy Art in River North

None 8 Photos Bohemian House
After this weekend, we hope to see you tan, rested and ready to take on the world.

Or at least tan.

And coherent.

And ready to take on a place that’s unafraid to schnitzel the hell out of stuff...

Make way for Bohemian House, a sumptuously appointed swing through the byways of Central Europe conveniently packaged in restaurant form, opening Monday in River North.

You’ll enter through a hand-carved door behind which lies an overstuffed haven chockablock with blue sofas in the front lounge, Moroccan tile around the open kitchen, mismatched antiques behind the bar, hand-painted plates at the dinner table and prints of scantily clad women by Alphonse Mucha (the Hugh Hefner of art nouveau) in the bathroom. Yes, always a nice touch.

It’s the kind of place where it’s probably worth making time for a predinner Manhattan made with fig-and-vanilla-infused bourbon. Or a Czech dark lager, one of the 16 beers on tap.

But make sure you bring a big group. The kind of group you want to impress at the chef’s table. You’ll all settle into a feast of fresh potato pancakes with gravlax, housemade knockwurst and Berkshire pork schnitzel. Or whatever the chef feels like schnitzeling that day.

He does this.
