Some years ago famous author Isaak Babel lived in cozy house on Saksaganskyi street 33/35, wrote beautiful novels and dated a pretty girl (his future wife). Now there is a restaurant "Babel" here with its own welcoming atmosphere, impeccable service and delicious cuisine. Of course, in the menu you can find Babel's favorite eggplant caviar, stuffed peppers.
