Check out this nypost.com article discussing Milwaukee “2.0″ featuring our very own culinary trio of Paul Bartolotta, Joe Bartolotta and Adam Siegel.


People have been writing about Milwaukee 2.0 for a long time now, but only recently has the city that’s perhaps known best for people that didn’t exist – Laverne, Shirley, The Fonz – ambled out of the 1980s and into the 21st century. Don’t get us wrong, there’s always been plenty to like about it. For instance, it’s got one of the most handsome downtowns in the country (German craftsmanship at its finest), beautiful, big, affordable homes, a lovely lakefront and a lot of beer, some of it quite drinkable. But hip? Never. That’s changed. These days, Milwaukee feels like it’s finally back in the game, innovating and restoring and renewing and just damn fun to spend time with. Check it out sometime soon, even if you only spend a day up here the next time you’re in Chicago, which is just an hour-and-a-half to the south. Totally worth it.

Local hangouts Long before Paul Bartolotta started winning awards and gaining national attention for his eponymous seafood-focused Italian stunner at Wynn in Las Vegas, Milwaukee knew him as one of the Bartolotta brothers. The family name has been synonymous with fine dining in Milwaukee for decades now. Their Lake Park Bistro, helmed by the James Beard Award-winning Adam Siegel, is not only a beautiful venue — an airy, romantic space in a historic, city-owned building overlooking Lake Michigan — it’s also a place for a smartly executed classic French meal or just a really good aperitif at the wonderful bar (3133 E. Newberry Blvd.).
