SMETANA is a gastrobar

with a fresh glance at European cuisine, flavored with nostalgic Polish and Ukrainian accents. We opened at the end of 2022 to become a new spot on the gastronomical landscape of Glenview.

Our inspiration was to create warm and comfortable ambience where you will be equally pleased to come for a business lunch, family dinner or a couple of cocktails with friends. We are kid-friendly and have delicious and healthy desserts on the menu.

We choose the culinary trend on reinventing traditional cooking recipes, so you can enjoy homemade meals and desserts cooked with soul and skill. Never tasted Polish pierogi, Belarusian potato pancakes or Ukrainian borsch? If not, here is the right place to try!

For every taste and any, even the most special occasion you will find a perfect drink, whether it is a signature cocktail, a glass of warming wine or some classic Polish liquor.

We serve traditional Eastern European drinks such as Cytrynówka, whose rich lemon flavor refreshes the taste buds and melts the heart, or sweet Krupnik that brings to mind blooming honey meadows.

Come and try!
