Trouble and Sons Pizzeria Is Coming Back

The Whitefish Bay restaurant has been closed the last couple of months.

Whitefish Bay’s Trouble and Sons Pizzeria (133 E. Silver Spring Dr.) is returning to the living – Tuesday, Sept. 27! – after a six-week hiatus.

During the time off, this sibling to the nearby restaurant MOXIE addressed some staffing issues, which have certainly plagued a lot of restaurants since the pandemic. Trouble and Sons hired a new executive chef, Christopher Feldmann. He comes bearing a range of cooking experience, including Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s Stackner Cabaret and Buca di Beppo (remember that joint?). He also shares the owners’ passion for motorcycles, but I digress.

With Feldmann in place, the menu will not be a carbon copy of what it was, though some favorites from the previous list of offerings are coming back. New items include Tuscan salmon over angel hair pasta with charred asparagus ($27) and Sicilian steak frites ($48) – a char-broiled 8-ounce NY strip with toasted breadcrumbs, fried capers and garlic compound butter served with roasted tomatoes and house-made parmesan fries. Beyond those two, there’s portobello mushroom caps stuffed with parmesan risotto ($24), shrimp fra diavolo ($22), chicken or eggplant parmesan ($22 and $19), spaghetti and meatballs ($20) and of course pizzas in composed styles (Double Trouble with Italian and andouille sausages and pepperoni), plus a build-your-own option (from $16).

Hours: Tues-Wed 5-8 p.m.; Thursday-Sat 5-9 p.m.
