Downtown Kitchen is coming to Milwaukee - and we're now on Instagram!


Closed on the 4th of July

Downtown Kitchen Coming to Downtown Milwaukee

The Lakeview Market cafeteria on the Galleria Level of the U.S. Bank Building in downtown Milwaukee discontinued its operations after the lunch hour yesterday, with Bartolotta’s officially taking over today to begin construction that will transform the space into the new Downtown Kitchen.

When it opens at the end of the summer, Downtown Kitchen will offer customers an expanded and improved dining experience, with more and better food offerings and a whole new look and feel for the dining area.

Downtown Kitchen will be open to the public and will serve breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday. The space will include a bar, which will be open periodically for social after-work events. The entire space will be available for private parties hosted by Bartolotta Catering and Events in the evenings and on weekends.
