We've always enjoyed Pasteur, a Vietnamese/French restaurant in Little Saigon, on Broadway. Never had a spectacular meal there, but always good.

Pasteur (5525 N. Broadway; 773-878-1061) one of Chicago’s top Vietnamese spots for ten years, is closing at the end of the year. “We own the property and we are going to develop it with condos,” says Kim Nguyen, a partner. “Pasteur will come back, and occupy the whole first floor with condos above.” Nguyen and her partners predict the whole thing will take at least a year and a half, at which point Pasteur will reopen as “more of a French and Vietnamese tapas restaurant,” she says. “You either have to evolve or leave the business.” In the meantime, she and her partners plan to open Viet Bistro at 1344 West Devon Avenue with the same menu as the current Pasteur—but with lower price points. Nguyen: “I’m dreaming, but I’m hoping for October.”
