The company has acquired the space at 11120 W. Cedarburg Road, Mequon (formerly known as “The Riversite” restaurant) and at 5601 Broad Street (formerly known as “The Taste of Home” and currently as “The Harmony Inn”) in the heart of the Greendale historic district, which is about five blocks from Southridge Mall.
Both locations will share the same name and offer a modern supper club experience.
“Growing up and living in Milwaukee most of my life, I enjoyed frequent visits to many great establishments which created memorable evenings for my family,” said Joe Bartolotta, president and co-owner of The Bartolotta Restaurants. “We’re looking forward to embracing a traditional Wisconsin supper club experience with a casual hometown atmosphere, comfort foods, classic beverages and of course, service you would expect in any of our venues.”
With high wood ceilings, a “hometown atmosphere” and ample parking, guests of Bartolotta’s newest venues will pick from a full menu with classic supper club fare, a large bar including a selection of tap beer, classic cocktails, value-oriented wine offerings and signature ice cream drinks.
The locations will open approximately six weeks apart with a planned opening for the Greendale supper club in late August and Mequon in mid-September.
Both locations will offer dinner, Sunday brunch and outdoor patio dining. Corporate Chef Adam Siegel will lead the culinary team with each location’s executive chef to be named in the coming weeks.
“Having the Bartolotta Restaurant Group in our city has been a goal of ours for some time. I’m thrilled that Joe Bartolotta will be bringing his award-winning cuisine to our Town Center area of Mequon and I know our citizens will enthusiastically support this new venture,” said Mequon Mayor Curt Gielow. “Mequon is proud to be the next geographic location for the expansion of the Bartolotta Restaurants.”
“We are proud to have the first Bartolotta restaurant to come to Milwaukee's south side in the heart of our Greendale community,” said Greendale Village President John Hermes. "The Bartolotta Restaurants are known for memorable meals with exceptional food and we look forward to this exciting addition for our village."
Bartolotta was featured in a marquis conversation on stage at the BizExpo on Thursday.
