Food scene
There are literally dozens of restaurants and bars in walking distance and a few that you may wish to drive to from our cottage. I am therefor restricting my listings to those close by. So as not to repeat myself, many of these places get quite crowded, which is a great sign and proof of their quality. It does mean, however, that you may wish to call ahead and/or make a reservation.
Incredibly fresh ingredients, serves sushi and Thai specialities. Quite yummy!

This is an incredibly awesome place to be in the spring-summer-fall, as it is largely an outdoor scene on the Kinnickinnic River. It has docks and pleasure boats on site, and for us, it is a go-to place for a drink and burger, or whatever. Just a lot of fun.

Excellent and reasonably priced Indian food, in a really nice setting. In warmer weather they have a great outdoor seating venue as well. They also do a huge carryout and delivery, so if that's what you want, they've got it.

Another wonderful, warm neighborhood tavern with delicious food. Lovely to sit out in the temperate months, and it has lake views. Nice environment for a solo woman, you're never harassed, just comfortable. Wonderfully steamy warm in the winter. Very close to our house.

This is a super favorite of ours, a family-run Serbian bar and restaurant which has been around for, I think, 70 years. The food is unusual, the real thing, made to order. This is an extremely unpretentious neighborhood tavern atmosphere with folks from all over the city. You definitely need a reservation and cash - no plastic! Walking distance from our house.

This is a tried and true neighborhood bar and restaurant serving Italian food. They are known primarily for their pizza, but have other menu items as well. Traditional checked oilcloth tablecloths, almost always busy, family and groups welcome, solo eaters may enjoy the bar as well. Outdoor tables in the summer look over the harbor and lake.

Even more restaurants and bars. (I just couldn't figure out how to merge the listings.)

Neighborhoods
Bay View is the best neighborhood in town, for me. It is a mixed bag of artisans, working folks, artists, professionals of different stripes, alternative health practitioners, etc. And, it is on the lake! Lake Michigan, that is. Always beautiful.

This is a very cool part of the downtown area. Lots of bars and restaurants, the Milwaukee Public Market is great, West Elm and many other fun and one-of-a-kind shops for clothing, decor, etc. Tory Folliard Gallery, to name but one of many galleries, home furnishings, easy to walk around, and particularly nice - again in the warm months - to visit the River Walk along the Milwaukee River.
