I love the new restaurants coming to South Milwaukee …
The latest is Grillworks, which is now open in the former Grebe’s and Nona’s building at 2206 10th Ave. They softly opened today, with plans to open at 6 a.m. Saturday for breakfast. They’ll also be serving lunch and dinner.
I stopped by this evening, and owner Mike Oren is excited to get going. The place looks terrific, with the extensive renovations including the addition of a second bathroom.
Stop by and check it out, and please have patience with their opening as they work out any bugs. Join me in welcoming them to downtown South Milwaukee!
And more good news down the block, literally: After popping in at Grillworks, I stopped by what will soon be Scrappy’s BBQ and checked in with Mike Hintz. He said they remain on track to open on Oct. 15 in the former Lloyd’s Lunch at 925 Madison Ave., and they will serve barbecue beef brisket, burnt ends, ribs, pulled pork, Italian beef, pressured-fried chicken and more, to-go or catered.
You’ll see some painting going on this weekend, with new equipment to come soon.
The small business momentum continues across South Milwaukee …
