Although Milwaukee’s Polish-American population remains large, Polish restaurants have dwindled. The one with the nicest setting, Polonez (4016 S. Packard Ave.), is located in a quiet residential neighborhood of St. Francis. There you will find Polish standards like pierogies, stuffed cabbage and bigos. The bar is perhaps even nicer than the dining room. There is a broad selection of Polish beers and vodka made from potatoes, not grains. The Sunday brunch buffet ($14.95) offers the expected breakfast fare with extras like shrimp and smoked salmon, plus items such as dill pickle soup, pierogies and bigos. Bigos, also called Hunter’s stew, is a mixture of meats with sauerkraut (the saltiness of the kraut is properly tamed here). Be sure to save room for a crepe.

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
