The Knick

The Knick, ¬†aptly named as it is part of the Knickerbocker Hotel, has a very delightful happy hour. Good cocktail, wine, and beer deals (delicious cocktails, by the way), and a decent menu to boot. Every weekday from 3-6, the Knick opens for happy hour. During the summer, they have a pleasant outdoor patio that... Continue Reading →

Zarletti

More Italian food! Girl's gotta have her carbs, you know. Except, Zarletti isn't one of those Italian places that shamelessly loads you with impossible-to-conquer portions. They're more modern and put new twists on the genre... or so I think... I don't actually know much about the classifications of Italian food. What I DO know, though,... Continue Reading →

Purple Door Ice Cream

If you look at the picture for this post, you may notice a flavor called "beer and pretzels" - that's right folks, we've gone full Wisconsin with this ice cream shop. Purple Door Ice Cream is a Milwaukee classic - and you can find it in person in the 5th Ward or in your local... Continue Reading →

Centro Cafe

Clearly I'm on an Italian kick, because my next stop was Centro Cafe, located on Center Street in Riverwest. I have to say, I do like this part of this little neighborhood - everyone seems to know everyone and there's a lot of unique restaurants and shops. Centro Cafe has Italian staples as well as...

DiModa Pizza

Apparently it is the age of fancy pizzas, and that means it is a fantastic time to be alive. More and more restaurants are popping up offering unique and artisan flatbreads and pizzas, or at least that is what I've noticed in Milwaukee. This includes a new place called DiModa. DiModa is located where Trocadero... Continue Reading →

Ale Asylum Riverhouse

Ale Asylum is a popular Madison-based brewery, but that of course does not stop them from staking out some prime property in Milwaukee. The Riverhouse sits, predictably, right on the river in downtown Milwaukee, and boasts beautiful picture windows and a nice patio to enjoy the scenery. Beer, of course, is their gig, but they...

Fro-Zone Rolled Ice Cream

I've lately seen a bizarre and intriguing concept pop up on social media: rolled ice cream. Like, little sushi-esque rolls of ice cream, beautifully adorned in a cup with toppings and other goodies. Apparently it originates in Thailand, but has recently become quite trendy here in the good U.S. of A. So, I was naturally... Continue Reading →

Story Hill BKC

Tucked away, kind of in the middle of nowhere on the west side of Milwaukee, is a little place called Story Hill BKC. The name sounds magical, and dear reader, this place is. It's quiet, it's quaint, and it's attached to a liquor store that has a seriously impressive selection. The BKC in the name... Continue Reading →

Balzac

Yes, most people do a double-take when reading or hearing the name for the first time. And yes, some people giggle. However, Balzac is nothing to laugh at - this Brady Street restaurant and wine bar has got it all, and it shows. They were actually voted best wine bar 5 years in a row,... Continue Reading →
