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.

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.)

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…

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…

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.
