One of your first sights upon entering Carnitas Don Lucho is the counter. Yes, there’s an unseen kitchen in this space, but at the counter where you place your order, you will marvel at the glistening pork carnitas, the butt cooking right there, hunks of which are lopped off and sold by the pound. The tender confit-like meat is akin to manna folded inside large, fresh corn tortillas. Drizzle fresh lime and Lucho’s smoky pasilla chile salsa (one of up to six sauces) over the meat. The taco doesn’t need much more to enhance the flavor.

The epitome of down-to-earth Bay View warmth and insouciance. Well-chosen wines and craft beers, and clever, well-balanced cocktails. The seasons dictate the menu to a certain degree, but you can count on the fabulous meats (chicken, lamb) cooked on the French rotisserie.

Sit at a table pushed up against the old wooden bar at Guadalajara. It’s old Milwaukee (the building dates to 1890) meets the modern wave of immigration. The steak is lean, on the juicy side, and with the spread of toppings, the tacos looks like little queso-capped mountain peaks. Don’t forget the house pico de gallo! This boffo fresh salsa of cabbage, radish and bell peppers offers that all-important crunch.

The Walker??s Point resto that inhabited an old German bar long before the area??s renaissance. Owner/chef Peggy Magister has a rapt audience that finds nothing crazy about her menu of chorizo-stuffed dates, parsley-crusted halibut, and soy-braised short ribs.)

A rad little pizzeria for a filling, satisfying slice or whole pie. Build your own or choose from selections like Meatallica, I’m Feta Up!!!, and Milmac N’ cheese. Not here for a slice? Get a spicy meatball sandwich. Homemade cupcakes and pie available as well.

A decorative thread of 1980s neon and poster art filters through this offbeat Walker’s Point bar run by folks from Boone & Crockett and Vanguard. Tater tots, sliders, Radskis salad, cheese fries and Brussels sprout salad are all worth snacking on.

 

It was probably inevitable that restaurant owners would see “small plates” for the two-bite finger foods that they are and seek to capitalize on them (i.e., serving less food for more money). In their favor, tapas let the diner try more things, often without breaking the bank. Read more…

The fire station theme is carried throughout the brick/hardwood two-floor venue (replete with engine-house memorabilia). Breakfast can be straightforward (eggs and bacon) or not (patacon con huevo). Engine Company’s yen for “international breakfast” is no surprise given its global-tapas-serving sibling La Merenda. Read more…

La Casa de Alberto avoids the “all signs point to dry beef” predicament that seems to plague griddled steak. This is tender, flavorful meat buried under your choice of toppings. And if you order the chunky guac (you should), pile it on thick!
