I recently visited Babushka's, a restaurant featuring Russian cuisine that opened in Hyde Park last year, and found the food to be fun and delicious.

If you go: Try the sauerkraut vareniki, which are steamed dumplings stuffed with mushrooms and sauerkraut, and the grechotto, a savory buckwheat risotto with portobello mushrooms and fresh herbs.

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Of note: Stickers and signs placed prominently around the interior suggest the owners stand with Ukraine during the war.

Details: Open for lunch and dinner. You can make reservations online. 901 W. Platt St.
