Walker’s Point has a vibrant and growing dining scene, and you don’t even have to stray from a single street to enjoy James Beard-recognized restaurants, artisan treats, local beers, and more. Get your stomach ready for this progressive food crawl along Second Street for a taste of what Walker’s Point has to offer.
Start with appetizer at Braise. This farm-to-table restaurant makes everything in-house and sources ingredients from local farmers and its own rooftop garden. Highly recommended: pork buns.
Dealer’s choice for dinner: if you’re craving New American, try the cozy, bohemian Crazy Water or rustic-chic Morel. For Spanish fare, check out Movida. Depending on where you land for dinner, enjoy a pre or post-dinner drink at Milwaukee Brewery Company or Central Standard Craft Distillery. Luckily, these two local beverage makers are located right next door to each other, so you can decide whether a cold brew or some locally-made bourbon sounds best.
(Note: if caffeine is called for at this point in your crawl, take a quick detour up Bruce St. to visit Anodyne Coffee.)
Time to end the night with dessert! Stop in at Indulgence Chocolatiers for handmade truffles and chocolate bars, or get delicious artisan ice cream at Purple Door Ice Cream. If you’re up for it, order an ice cream flight to try more flavors.
