U Kucharzy

One of my favorite places in Warsaw-- U Kucharzy on Krakowskie Przedmiescie across the street from Hotel Bristol--- 20 złoty per person (3 courses) with kitchen views, cooks, all-you-can-drink kompot (cooked fruit drink served chilled) piano, ambiance and all.

neighborly support

In the center of Warsaw by Saski Park and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, there stands a poster with the image of the former Belarussian presidential candidate. The poster says, "Mikałaj Statkiewicz, candidate for the president of Belarus, has been on trial since May 11, 2011. He can be sentenced up to 8 years in prison because he opposed Łukasenko in the 2010 elections."
Showing more support: a Belarussian crest made out of flowers in front of the Zacheta Museum

If you are in Krakowskie Przedmiescie ( in front of the Presidential palace), stop by the window at Braci Gessler for some seasonal wild blueberry pastries (5 zł each). Down the street at Blikle ( on Nowy Swiat street by Chmielna and Foksal), they sell them for 4 zł.
