Restos in Milwaukee

cookswife May 14, 2007 12:55 PM

My hubby and I are headed to Milwaukee for a quick get away Friday night.

Any suggestions on somewhere fabulous for dinner?

Would love something green zebra, schwa 'esc" but seriously will take something small and cozy too - just want some good food.

    FYI, on the list nsxtasy provides, Au Bon Appetit is closed. Also, I don't know if Karl Ratzch's lives up to its rep anymore. I've heard of some disappointments over the past few years.

      In Milwaukee, one restaurant surpasses all others:

      Sanford Restaurant
      1547 N. Jackson Street
      Milwaukee, WI 53202
      (414) 276-9608

      It's spectacular, as good as the best places in Chicago. It's worth a trip from the Chicago area, even if you're only going up there for dinner and coming right back. I love that place!
