Steaks, lobster tails, beef stroganoff, schaum torte. That can only mean one thing – a supper club. And indeed, Joey Gerard’s, the Bartolotta Restaurants-owned supper club in Greendale (5601 Broad St., 414-858-1900), has returned to service. Its first day of giving local folks their fill of traditional and reimagined Wisconsin fare and classic cocktails was Thursday, Dec. 17. The 9-year-old restaurant’s kitchen is helmed by executive chef David Wolfe, whose background includes working at two Milwaukee hotels, the Kimpton Journeyman and Iron Horse.
Other menu items include chicken marsala, cedar-plank salmon and shrimp penna alla vodka. Featured ice cream drinks are the brandy Alexander and Grasshopper, among others.
Several other Bartolotta properties have reopened. The are: Ristorante Bartolotta dal 1993, Mr. B’s – A Bartolotta Steakhouse, Harbor House, Bacchus and Lake Park Bistro.
Hours: Tues-Sat 5-9 p.m., with service hours on two Monday nights in December as well: Dec. 21 and Dec. 28.
