Since 1993, Harry and Bud’s European Cuisine has become one of Terre Haute’s most renowned and popular establishments. It is a mixture of the traditional Mom and Pop place and Greenwich Village hangout, along with food that pushes culinary boundaries. As for the menu, the European-inspired dishes change daily depending on the availability of their fresh ingredients, with the only ‘constant’ dish being their black bean soup. The decor is quirky and fun, with purposefully mismatched Formica table sets and an eye catching bathroom wallpaper, along with exposed brick walls and a glass brick window to truly reinvent the original 1950s building.
