Millioke: Good & Beautiful
Millioke translates to “The good or beautiful land,” which is exactly what is accomplished in Millioke’s Wisconsin-based menu offerings and comfortable atmosphere. This urban tavern is fittingly located on the corner of Milwaukee and Wisconsin Avenues in the heart of Downtown. Having the pleasure of sitting down with Sarah, the restaurant manager, I was able to grasp what makes the restaurant special and unique. “Local, local, local” is the name of the game ranging from meats, cheeses, and beers which of course are specially combined and paired to please your palate.
Whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, Millioke offers a range of options from fresh locally-farmed salads to native meats such as a local favorite: smoked bone-in pork chops. Millioke is sure to have something on their menu to keep you coming back. I personally am going back with an empty stomach to take on the signature ‘Millioke Burger,’ loaded with cheese curds, beer onion jam, and house burger sauce.
Delicious food and a comfortable -- yet social -- environment make this venue appeal to any outing be it an early breakfast, a lunch meeting or -- my favorite -- a fun weekend night out. If you’re looking for an opportunity to familiarize yourself with Milwaukee flavor, Millioke needs to be on your map. This certainly is what I would define as a “Milwaukee Must”!
