Three new restaurants serving up Korean fried chicken, Greek cuisine and eclectic bakery goods are on their way to Schaumburg later this year.
Village trustees Tuesday unanimously approved a location of the nationwide Korean restaurant chain Bonchon at 1408 E. Golf Road, Spitiko Cafe at 1148 S. Roselle Road and Knead Bakery at 233 W. Golf Road.
Bonchon, which will be in the Woodfield Village Green shopping center across from Woodfield Mall, already has one Illinois location in Chicago's Chinatown, with others to open soon on Division Street in the city and in Glenview.
Specializing in Korean fried chicken and wings, the Schaumburg location will be in a 2,500-square-foot space formerly occupied by a Sarku Japan restaurant.
Spitiko Cafe will specialize in Greek fare, including dough pies, pita pockets and puff pastries.
It will move into the 1,148-square-foot space in the Schaumburg Towncenter shopping center at the northwest corner of Wise and Roselle roads.
Knead Bakery will be both a cafe and bakery with the intention of combining eastern and western cultures in its products. Its bakery items will be inspired by Japanese, Korean and European influences, according to the village's review of the proposal.
Knead will occupy a 4,040-square-foot space in the Schaumburg Marketplace shopping center, where its neighbors will include fellow restaurants Godavari, Sakura Sushi, 92 Town Korean Barbecue, Melting Pot, Thai Garden and @CoffeeHouse.
Schaumburg officials Tuesday did not have estimated completion dates for the three new restaurants.
