The area where State meets Harwood in Wauwatosa is Mike Eitel’s Little Europe. It’s part of the reason Lowlands Group took over the building just west of Café Hollander (another Lowlands property) to create Café Bavaria, opening today. German-inspired cuisine and beer are Cafe Bavaria’s claims to fame. The interior sounds a bit Café Benelux-like. That is because 360 Degrees handled the design for Bavaria and its Third Ward sister, Benelux. Besides the focal point bar, the first floor has a fireplace surrounded by bench seating. The small upstairs contains both the kitchen and a dining room with 10 tables. Menu-wise, Bavaria isn't doing the Teutonic food of old German grandmas. Some examples of the plates: Strauss veal-stuffed meatloaf, beef stroganoff, Rushing Waters rainbow trout, three kinds of schnitzel, burgers and more ($9.95-$22.95). Bavaria is also the home of "Deceit Free Food." A page of the menu is devoted to naming the sources of their meats and seafood, cheese and produce. The cafe is open for brunch, too. Also, it carries an extensive selection of tap beer. Hours: Mon-Fri 11 a.m.-1 a.m.; Sat-Sun 8 a.m.-1 a.m. (7700 W. Harwood Ave., Wauwatosa, 414-271-7700)
