Where to:

2. Satisfy late night cravingsThe Vanguard – you can’t get more Wisconsin than a late night sausage and no better place to get one than the Vanguard.  Order a Styled Sausage as a second dinner paired with one of their beer recommendations or go all out and get The Butcher Board with 3 different sausages!

3.  Splurge $$$ on a killer meal: Morel – one of my favorite restaurants in Milwaukee, highlighting farm-to-table dishes straight from Wisconsin’s countryside.

4.  Go for date nightThe Noble – no reservations and only a handful of tables, but the cutest hidden gem to impress anyone on a first date (or hundredth date).  I love the chalkboard menu that changes daily and the drinks are equally great.

5.  Eat cleanBowls – need fresh food fast?  Pick your favorite ingredients Chipotle style without the guilt.  Way better than a standard salad joint with ingredients such as seared ahi tuna, salmon, grass-fed medium rare steak, and kimchi.

6.  Enjoy coffee/tea with a friendInterval – a corner coffee shop with a modern twist and unique coffee choices on tap.  Sweet and creamy draft latte, anyone?
