Old Fashioneds

 

Old Fashioneds

The Old Fashioned, in fact, is the original cocktail, dating back to the early 19th century. While most use Whiskey, the Wisconsin version is all about the brandy and muddled fruit. Here in Milwaukee, we also like to add some locally-made bitters from Bittercube.

Cheese Curds

 

Cheese Curds

The curd is the word in Milwaukee! And fried cheese curds are even better, especially when they’re battered in Lakefront Brewery’s Eastside Dark.

Local Coffee

 

Local Coffee

Leave the chain coffee to Boston and Seattle. When you’re in Milwaukee, you drink local. Get to know our coffee scene with one of the founders of Colectivo Coffee.

Fish Fry

 

Fish Fry

Milwaukee as we know it today was founded by predominantly Catholic European immigrants, so it’s no surprise that fish on Friday became a citywide offering year round. It’s a tradition families of many backgrounds keep today – check out the unique take created by Chef Miguel at the United Community Center.

Frozen Custard

 

Frozen Custard

Richer and creamier than ice cream thanks to the addition of egg yolks, frozen custard is Milwaukee’s favorite frozen treat. Milwaukee is home to the world’s largest concentration of frozen custard shops, earning the city the unofficial title of “frozen custard capital of the world.”

International Flavor

 

International Flavor

From Syrian to Ethiopian, Nepalese to Vietnamese, it’s deliciously comforting to know that you don’t have to go far to try flavors from around the world when you’re in Milwaukee, including the tastes of St. Lucia at Jewels Caribbean.

Outdoor Dining

 

Outdoor Dining

Milwaukeeans just can’t help but celebrate the city’s sublime summer weather with alfresco drinking and dining, from beer gardens to restaurant patios like you’ll find at Ristorante Bartolotta's La Terraza.

Food Halls

 

Food Halls

Combine the convenience and flexibility of a food court with quality, local foods and you have a food hall. These destinations provide space and support to entrepreneurs of all kinds, from new restauranteurs to pop-ups – just like Confectionately Yours at Sherman Phoenix.
