Our History

Pasteur started in 1985 at the corner of Sheridan Road and Lawrence Avenue, hoping to be reminiscent of the row of phở shops that lined Saigon's famed Pasteur Avenue in Vietnam. Unfortunately, the building caught fire, and was relocated to Chicago Avenue in the heart of downtown. Our current building at Broadway and Bryn Mawr Avenue, only blocks from our original location, had a great decade-long run before closing down in April of 2007.

Pasteur reopened under the same ownership in January of 2012, and it is with great honor that we welcome every guest to the restaurant. Over time, we have embarked on a more ambitious concept of Vietnamese cuisine with a French-colonial twist. We offer many specialty dishes of each region of Vietnam, and our goal is to educate everyone about Vietnamese culture by way of culinary art.

Private Events & Catering

We have a beautiful Private Dining Room available for private use, and for larger events, the whole restaurant (and patio when seasonally appropriate) can be rented out. If you'd rather we deliver our food to you, we also offer event catering.
