  2. Urban Beets: If you’re looking for a bite of fresh, this underrated restaurant has the perfect vegan/non vegan options for any health conscious gal! From their fresh pressed juices, to their various fresh sandwich options, you’ll find what you’re looking for.
  3. Third coast provisions: If you want seafood you need to checkout this ADORABLE restaurant. It’s perfect for date night.
  4. Di Moda: Small plates. Small plates. Small plates 
  5. Café Madrid: Every Thursday night they have all you can eat Paella and all you can drink Sangria for just $25. The atmosphere is glamorous and makes you feel like you’re traveling to Spain for a few hours.
  6. La Sala: If you love a good hole-in-the-wall restaurant and real Sicilian food, this is the spot you want to be. It is authentic Sicilian food with a cozy atmosphere. This is a personal fav for date night. 
  7. The outsider: This rooftop bar is great for birthdays, celebrations or any weeknight get together with the girls. Grab a fancy cocktail and a tasty appetizer to unwind after a long day.

  9. Yokohana: If you’re in the mood for some ramen and funky snow cone drinks, look no further than this trendy east side karaoke-ramen restaurant. 
  10. Nana’s: A personal sushi favorite for me, Nana’s sushi in Shorewood has the best sweet potato and spicy tuna role in Milwaukee. Pair it with some spicy mayo and you have the best little meal!
