Looking for Polish restaurant in Milwaukee

I haven't been able to find a really satisfying Polish restaurant in Milwaukee since Cracovia on National Avenue closed. Does anyone have recommendations? Also do you know what happened to Cracovia? Does anyone have their recipe for Pierogis? I remember when they first opened I asked one of the people who worked there what was in them and they said that there was some honey or honey in the water when they cooked it to make them extra sweet. All I know is they were the best I had tasted since my grandma passed away. Now they are gone too so I am looking around for some recipe or some other restaurant. Any suggestions?

    My aging copy of "Milwaukee's Best Cheap Eats" recommends Polonez at 4016 S. Packard, 384-8766. Never been there, but, I've been getting recommendations from this book for the last five years and haven't been disappointed yet(except when the place has gone out of business. This has only happened twice, though).

    I think part of the Polish restaurant problem in Milwaukee was that if it wassn't made exactly like one's mother/grandmother, it's wasn't worth going to. Alas, we only have two Polish restaurants left and I must say I love them both. Polonez is outstanding as is Crocus Restaurant 3577 South 13th Street Milwaukee, WI 53221 414-643-6383.
