Bohemian House is known for executive chef Jimmy Papadopoulos' evolved take on Eastern European cuisine, so it's not a huge surprise that the restaurant hasn't put a burger on its menu in the eight months since opening. Not even as a clichéd add (as many are wont to do) to their recently launched brunch service.
For Eater's burger week, Papadopoulos is going to tease Chicagoans with an extremely limited run of The Bohemian House "Sleeper Hold" (a wrestling move designed to put one's opponent to sleep, here just consuming the burger should do the trick), serving only 10 per night. The 8-ounce grilled burger is topped with Emmentaler cheese, braised sauerkraut (fermented in house for three weeks, then braised with onions, caraway, bacon and garlic), a fried egg and a special secret sauce on a house-made bun and is served with house dill pickles along with salt and vinegar chips for $14.
The Bohemian House Sleeper Hold (good thing Papadopoulos isn't a big Iron Sheik fan, because an exotic game burger called "The Camel Clutch" might not go over well) will be available at Bohemian House through Friday, but only between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Make sure you don't miss out.
