Changes are afoot, including a menu of sandwiches, sausages and German specialties. Order a sausage platter or open-face bologna/meatloaf sandwich with your German beer.

 

I came of age when Farwell and North was a nightlife bellwether and “classy” meant going to Von Trier, the dark Germanic bar that was our refuge on finger-numbing winter nights. My UW-Milwaukee friends liked to sit at a certain table near the bar. To me, it seemed like we could never park close enough (that brutal wind!), but there was a popcorn machine and fancy hot drinks with rum or Frangelico in them. Read more…

Hot pot is the Chinese equivalent of fondue – a communal pot of broth set on a portable burner at the table, set to cook everything from meat to mushrooms.

Strange Town.jpg
2101 N. Prospect Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53202 0.19 mi

Warm, European-vibed spot for genuinely inspiring plant-based food and wines from naturally operated vineyards. Menu changes are frequent. Highlights include gnocchi con giardiniera, the Sicilian pizza and any of the salads.

 

The new Strange Town is the latest chapter in a journey, not strange but also not conformist, for owner Andy Noble. The DJ and musician had thought about opening an eating/drinking place, he says, but it was this space – the former Allium (2101 N. Prospect Ave., 414-885-0404) – that acted as a summons. Read more…

Celesta is the restaurant that evolved out of the Beatrix Foods vegan pop-ups run by Melanie Manuel. Occupying the old Jownai Fouquet (or Abu’s Jerusalem of the Gold, if you have a good memory) at 1978 N. Farwell Ave., Celesta is part of our city’s growing plant-based dining movement. Read more…

Aesthetically, the space has leaped from functional strip-mall burger joint (the onetime Sobelman’s Tallgrass Grill) to an attractive, light-filled, blond-wood-endowed little destination for sushi and its Japanese compatriots, as well as covering Thai territory like curries and noodle dishes. Adroit care is taken in shaping and slicing, from the round, delicately curved crab Rangoon to the maki-roll like cuts of the virgin spring rolls.

An easy little east-of-Oakland spot to roll into for apps at the bar or a more organized affair in the cozy white-tablecloth dining room. Beer dinners are becoming Tess’ claim to fame. The cozy, private garden patio makes a lovely setting for a summer night.

This is so much more than a restaurant named after space debris. Diner-y eats like meatloaf with beer gravy and the compact turkey dinner are instant pick-me-ups.

The emphasis on eating without utensils draws greater attention to the textures and flavors of the meat and vegetarian stews served directly on a thin, spongy pancake. Pop for the chicken doro wat ?? a spicy chicken stew (drumstick included) with hard-boiled egg. Group of four or more diners? Even better. Bond over beef tibs.

Milwaukee old-style pizza, cracker-thin. Light and crispy. Sausage and cheese is a standby, but experiment and find your favorite. The lowbrow dining room is often packed elbow to elbow with ‘za eaters, leaning on the red-and-white checked tablecloth. The tasty house red wine is served in jam jars, of course.

So not the Pizza Man of yore (the original was destroyed by fire), and yet, so like it. The owners have capitalized on the best parts of the old joint ?? the thin-crust pizza, staples like wild boar ravioli, and extensive selection of by-the-glass wines. They??ve gone better by adding the second-floor dining under a retractable roof. They??ve also proven that cream cheese is genius on a pizza.
