Snifters: Luxury in Walker's Point
Walker’s Point in Milwaukee is experiencing a resurgence of dining and after-hours activity. It is there you will find Snifters, a fantastically innovative restaurant combining the best characteristics of Soul and Latin foods in beautifully crafted and delicious tapas recipes. In addition to Snifter’s mouthwatering food menu, you will enjoy its creative list of hand-curated cocktails with a classic flare focusing on rich brown spirits…ALL of which are served in a Snifter glass, of course.
Owners Maldonado & Morgan have done an amazing job in taking a classic Cream City building and creating a swanky yet relaxing atmosphere utilizing warm wood textures and nostalgic decor. Snifters provides diverse dining experiences through the use of multiple venues including their beautifully crafted bar, classy dining room, and relaxed basement lounge. Patrons can choose their own dining experience. Having frequented Snifters many times, my favorite spot is their outdoor garden patio, furnished with its own bar, comfortable seating and the opportunity to purchase a Maldonado hand-selected cigar which pairs extremely well with their cocktails.
Chef Luis Garcia is the man behind the Snifters menu and takes pride in carefully preparing each dish ordered. I am hooked on the empanadas stuffed with a range of flavors and styles from barbecue roasted pulled pork, triple sec and Anejo tequila pico de gallo, to cajun creole with spicy jambalaya, andouille sausage, shredded chicken, shrimp, and seasoned mix! I recommend dinner be accompanied by Snifters’ “Something Old, Something New” specialty cocktail. Created with Torres Brandy, house-made maple simple syrup, cherries, and bitters, this tends to be my “go to” order!
Did someone mention “Bottle Club”? Snifters patrons have the opportunity to become members of their exclusive “Bottle Club”. The Spirits Sommelier (or whiskey expert) presents extraordinary selections of fine scotch and bourbon to Club members in their very own personal bottle. Assortments range from both one-of-a-kind flavors to recurring favorites.
Snifters is a truly unique experience that I classify as a Milwaukee Must!
