Appetizers, pastas and pizzas worth a visit

The spot on Downer Avenue that once housed the Coffee Trader has seen mixed success over the years. The Original Pancake House has occupied part of the spot since 2006, but the other half saw Pizzeria Piccola and Ristorante Bartolotta fail to take off.

Enjoy pizza, beer and more along the Kinnickinnic River

About a year ago, the Horny Goat Brewing Co. joined the proud tradition of Wisconsin-crafted beers and introduced a new brand to the area. In October 2009 the Horny Goat Hideaway opened in a former industrial building located on the banks of the Kinnickinnic River. With its fun, pub atmosphere, this spot could well change the image of this gritty, industrial neighborhood. The two-story interior features walls that have been stripped down to their basic brick.

At that time, the kitchen occupied the spot of the old back bar, and the chefs would perform their magic directly in front of you. Three years ago, however, The Social made a big move north, to the site of a former foundry near the Milwaukee River.

Zarletti’s newest success

Entrepreneur Brian Zarletti recently opened his third local restaurant. The first was Cafe Zarletti, located in South Milwaukee; the second arrived as the even simpler-named Zarletti, in downtown Milwaukee; and now Rustico has been added to the scene. All three restaurants offer Italian fare in casual settings, though...

Pizza Transformed

For years it was a diner called Scrambled Ed’s, and before that, a George Webb. The new occupants, Transfer Pizzeria Cafe (101 W. Mitchell St.), have restored much of the century-old corner building to its original appearance, exposing wooden beams, a tile floor and stained glass.
