Norman’s Bistro is located east of the Bronzeville community on Chicago’s South Side. Bronzeville’s boundaries begin at 35th and State Street and extend south to 47th Street and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. According to ChooseChicago.org, “Historically known as the city’s “Black Metropolis,” it’s home to a diverse business community, historic landmarks, and lively events, like the annual Bud Billiken Parade that draws more than one million spectators each August.”

Scores of this country’s greatest entertainers, intellectuals, artists, and writers hailed from Bronzeville, including musicians Louis Armstrong, Nat “King” Cole, Sam Cooke, Dinah Washington, Quincy Jones, and Herbie Hancock; gospel music pioneers Mahalia Jackson and Thomas A. Dorsey; choreographer Catherine Dunham; women’s aviation pioneer Bessie Coleman; author Richard Wright; activist and writer Ida B. Wells; Olympic legends Jesse Owens and Ralph Metcalf; Negro League Baseball founder Andrew Rube Foster; boxer Joe Louis; and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gwendolyn Brooks.

Norman’s Bistro is also minutes away from a former home of Chicago blues legend Muddy Waters. According to the Washington Post (https://tinyurl.com/wlbn8ye). Waters purchased an 1879 red-brick Victorian at 4339 So. Lake Park in 1954 and lived there until moving to Westmont in 1974.
