When Kinga Klek, owner of Kinga's Lounge, told us about her plans for Belvedere Restaurant, a Polish joint she's putting in the old Cafe Berlin location on 14th Street, she said she hoped to have the doors open by July 1.
Klek didn't quite make that deadline. The spot was still under construction last week, which forced her to push her plans back.
Friends friends and employees were helping haul furnishings into the place yesterday, and the new goal is to start serving on Friday.
Once the doors are open, Klek plans a three-day grand opening celebration with specials at her fine dining spot.
And at least she's moving faster than Cafe Berlin, which is still working on the build-out for its new home at 1600 Champa Street.
