Working in GARF - 2

It has been years since I last worked in GARF-2 on Berezhkovskaia. I will be working there for a few weeks in May. Do I have to go to Pirogovskaia to register first or can registration be taken care of at Berezhkovskaia?

Any other tips to pass along - lunch places, for example - would be most appreciated.

I'd love to get any hint possible.

Thank you!
