On Thursday, the Milwaukee Street Restaurant Group announced a change in ownership and name. The group made up of Mike Polaski, Omar Shaikh and Thomas Wackman will now consist only of Polaski and Shaikh under the name SURG Restaurant Group. Wackman no longer has any interest in the restaurant group and will pursue other separate opportunities.
“I bring the operations experience and Mike brings the business structure, it’s a strategic partnership that guarantees success in this industry,” said Shaikh.
SURG includes Carnevor, Umami Moto, Charro, Mikey’s, Nuovo Centanni and Distil (coming soon to Milwaukee St.). Shaikh’s main focus and direct interest is in Carnevor, Umami Moto and both Charros. Moving forward the group is looking into markets outside Milwaukee.
“Mike and I have a clear vision and mutual respect for each other,” said Shaikh. “We’re not in this just for a profit. We truly believe in creating memorable dining experiences, and keeping the bar set high in Milwaukee.”
