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.

Imagine a place where you can get a duck BLT sausage, a cheddarwurst, chili dog and scads of others ?? all links, no patties. Imagine no more. That is the modus operandi of this super-delish counter-service sausage emporium, which is also serious about draft cocktails, whiskey and bourbon.

Seasonal cuisine incorporating local foods is the mantra of this beautifully restored occupant of Walker’s Point’s “Restaurant Row.” The steamed pork buns are a must. Also offers hands-on cooking classes.

El Cabrito – whose name translates to “little goat” – is marinated and slow-roasted (leg, sometimes), which lends a succulent texture and flavor similar to lamb. Keen palates will detect cinnamon, cumin, even lemon peel. Like other meats, it needs only cilantro and onion on top, but don’t be shy with the chunky red salsa! And corn tortillas are best.

This sibling to Movida and Hotel Madrid puts a modern spin on the 1950s diner, with some classics and untraditional spins. Examples include the bananarama French toast, “naughty” angel burger, chicken pot pie and corned beef hash. Drinks range from boozy milkshakes to a spiked cereal cocktail. Breakfast is served all day.

 

I sense a trend. While Sweet Diner has brought a very un-dinery look and vibe to the Third Ward, Don’s Diner & Cocktails is offering up its “classic diner you crave” theme ‒ but without a more modern aesthetic ‒ in Walker’s Point. Read more…

This Bay View institution still has a Schlitz brewery globe hanging over the bar – a piece of historic Milwaukee in an otherwise old-world, Eastern Europe bubble. The effect of dining in the home of an old relative (who happens to be a great cook) keeps people coming back, for stars of the show like chicken paprikash, cevapcici (sausage) and the incomparable burek.

The patrons seated around the bar finish each other’s thoughts, let alone sentences. This is that kind of place. The pizza has a solid rim of breadiness, and it’s strong and on the thicker side of thin. The toppings are what make it. More is more. If you can see crust under big chunks of sausage and vegetables, you’re not at this Bay View institution.

Order badly? It’s not likely here, not with huevos rancheros, avocado smash-up and enchiladas verdes as options.

 

The call came last spring. Francisco “Frank” Sanchez, whose family ran the old Taqueria Azteca on Oklahoma and Chase, was back – returning to the industry after several years out of the dining limelight. Only not at a straight-up Mexican place as he was known for before. Read more…
