CHICAGO — A wildly popular Czech restaurant is reportedly coming to Chicago: the beer train.

According to an AP report out of Prague, owners of the Vytopna restaurant that features toy trains bringing drinks (and food) to the tables of customers aims to expand to the United States, starting in Chicago. The Prague eatery serves about 1,500 drinks a day.

"We were looking for an interesting place in the United States, and we ended up in Chicago," owner Petr Fridrich told the news wire service. "That we wanted to start making beer added to our decision. There is a large German community, they know what it [beer] is about, and a significantly large space was available. At the moment, we are finalizing the last details of the rent contract."

Fridrich says the Chicago location might open at the end of the year.
