ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how Russian culture thrived in Chicago, Illinois. The midwestern city is known for its vast Polish community which immigrated to the U.S. after Poland fell under Soviet rule. Exact historical statistics on Russian immigration are difficult to produce. Waves of Russian immigrants, which ended in the early 1990s, brought Eastern European food and customs to Chicago. Several dining establishments with Russian roots are operating in various parts of the city.
