Polonez: New Menu, Same Great Experience
Along with Crocus, Polonez is among the last Polish restaurants on the South Side of Milwaukee County, an area once dominated by Poles. Although it is a little off the normal dining path, tucked into a largely residential St. Francis neighborhood, Polonez is worth the trip. The recently revamped menu has lost none of its ethnic charm, featuring pierogi (filled dumplings), Polish sausage, potato pancakes, hunter’s stew and lots of pork dishes along with salmon filet, chicken breasts and American fare. The Friday fish fry is among the most generous in town, complete with dinner rolls, coleslaw and choice of soup or salad. Where else can you find a side order of kopytka (potato dumplings)?
