Barbiere's may replace Il Mito on Virginia
Barbiere's Italian Inn may be replacing the closed Il Mito restaurant in the Walker's Point neighborhood, Barbiere's owner Mark Dempsey said today.
Dempsey wants the former Il Mito location, 605 W. Virginia St., as a second location for Barbiere's, 5844 W. Blue Mound Road. Dempsey said he's been in discussions with the building's owner, Tannery Remnants LLC, and had a tavern license approved by the Common Council for that location.
Il Mito, which features Mediterranean cuisine, opened in 2000. It closed in part because of litigation between Tannery Remnants and Il Mito owner Michael Feker that resulted in an eviction order against the restaurant, said Brad Hoeschen, Feker's attorney. Feker continues to operate his other Il Mito restaurant, which opened in 2006 at 6913 W. North Ave., Wauwatosa.
We're holding out for an IHOP.
