Located less than a tank of gas away, Milwaukee is a reunion-style town filled with its culinary delights at every turn…
And, just as with a summer time’s ever growing, extended family reunion, all the relatives have shown up with their dishes of pride in this bordering-Lake Michigan town.
A virtual smorgasbord of epicurean delights is tucked away in every corner of this revitalized family-reunion of a town. Without losing the family tree’s historical significance, Milwaukee embraces its younger, more energetic generation’s offerings.
