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…

A worthy addition to anyone’s Indian food rotation, the lunch special at this restaurant in a gas station strip mall includes portions of as many dishes as your server can ladle into a carryout container: saag paneer, lamb curry and chicken tikka masala are possible.

The Spanish-influenced plates are small, but the flavors are not. The interior says ??reclaimed old Milwaukee storefront.?? Weekly live flamenco guitar, and flowing gin and tonics, say ??Madrid.?? Pair all that Espana with croquetas (fritters), meatballs, tostas (open-faced sandwiches) and paella.

A friendly, casual little bar where the sandwiches can be quirky (kimcheese, Brussels sprout grinder) and tasty. Good Monday $5 burger special. Brunch menu features things like breakfast. Read more…

You’ll find morel mushrooms on occasion. And lots of rich preps of duck, lamb, beef and fish. If you don’t mind a little heat, the few seats at the kitchen counter (in view of the chefs) are the most entertaining spots in the house. 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!

Quirky little counter-service soup shop that has a following just for its fire-roasted red pepper bisque. But there are other great options here, which change depending on the day. Look for cheddar and Bermuda onion, and cowboy chunky chili. Sandwiches available too. Dine in or carryout.
