Don’t Forget Tosa’s Radisson Hotel Bar
The urban modern (with retro flair) style of the Radisson Hotel (2303 N. Mayfair Road), its lobby decorated with colorful paintings of Milwaukee landmarks, was a striking addition to Wauwatosa when it opened in the late ’90s. Along with accommodating visitors to the metro area, the Radisson’s restaurant and bar (especially the bar) provided a much-needed place for locals to congregate before the construction of new restaurants at Mayfair Mall and new hotels in the area. Amid all the current options, don’t forget the Radisson. The bar remains a comfortable spot for a drink or bite to eat with its warm wood tones, sound-absorbing carpeting and happy hour specials from 4 to 10 p.m. Most of the bar food is tasty, especially the flavorful half-pound Angus burgers and chicken breast sandwiches, the generously portioned quesadilla and an enormous bruschetta platter.
