    Classy on top, relaxed in the cellar. Outdoor seating with great city views. The chef beautifully prepares organic and local food with complex flavors. Consistently delicious.

    I've been here twice in the past week just for drinks. Amazing garden, patio, view and drink selection. Great beer prices from many local breweries. The food is good too. What's not to love? Read more

    Hurry in for Happy Hour Monday-Friday 4p-6p. Have an appetizer (or two). Decide to stay for dinner because your taste buds are hooked!

    Hands down the best Sunday brunch in Milwaukee, and generally a great place to eat. They make killer food with local, organic, in-season ingredients. (via Scoville) Read more

    Go for Brunch and get the Roots Benedict. Ahi Tuna, Poached eggs, tempura battered nori and a wasabi hollandaise. Soooo good! Plus they serve Alterra Coffee
