A restaurant, cafe and gallery, "Ariel" is located in the center of Kazimierz, a Jewish quarter vibrant with life. Ariel is a popular choice for an old-fashioned Jewish dinner, with interesting and traditional dishes such as stuffed goose necks and favorites such as Jewish dumplings and Herring in sour cream. Ariel is found at the heart of the Jewish district on the evocative Szeroka street, where they have four rooms inside a historic old townhouse. In summer it’s a fine place to sit outside.
History and time period
Ariel" was established in a tenement house between the World Wars, occupying the place where an old 18th century "Rabbi House" used to stand, inhabited by uncompromising adversaries of Chasidism - rabbi Isaak Lewitan (died in 1799) and his son Dawid Levy (Cracow`s rabbi in 1816 - 1832).
