Here is a fun game to play. I have been asking myself and others this question: If you had friends coming in to town for three days, where would you take them to eat to get them good food but a quintessential city experience? As we debated about Milwaukee destinations, the hubs and I decided that this was still a bit too wide open, so I tried to think of the different experiences I would want to have during that time. I would want a great breakfast/brunch, a good lunch, and if there were three dinners, a low end, medium, and higher end restaurant. And maybe some sweets, or some drinks? Here is what we came up with for Milwaukee.
Breakfast/Brunch: Blue's Egg

Lunch: Milwaukee Public Market
Dinner ($): Rustico
Dinner ($$): Crazy Water
Dinner ($$$); Lake Park Bistro
Sweets: Rocket Baby Bakery
Drinks: The Safe House, and The Nomad
For touristy fun, go to the Safe House, a hidden spy lair that is unmarked, and you need a password to get in. I am not going to tell you the password, that is what the Internet is for.
For casual dive bar fun, hit up Brady Street starting at the Nomad. In true Milwaukee style, you can get the "Prix Fixe," which consists of a shot of Jameson, a can of Pabst, and a cigarette for the bargain price of $5.
Blog readers, share what you would do differently for a tour of Milwaukee, or share a few from your city. Madison, WI? Twin Cities? Chicago? Baltimore/DC? San Francisco? Sharing is caring.
Enjoy your own city, and love where you live.
