The Hyatt Regency’s new Bistro Bar 333 officially opened to the public last Friday evening. Bistro Bar 333 is situated conveniently on the main level in the newly renovated Hyatt Regency in the heart of downtown Milwaukee.
The Hyatt's spacious lobby features complimentary WiFi access while your cocktail servers take your order.
The new restaurant fills the void left by the Polaris restaurant when it closed its doors in April, 2009. The Polaris opened in 1980 and was Wisconsin’s only revolving restaurant. The Polaris plans to reopen for private events.
Bistro 333 serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with each menu specially hand crafted by their chefs to offer the finest cuisine of the state and region while combining the best of urban chic and casual comfort. Bistro 333′s warm decor invites you to experience top quality and unassuming fare that you might find in the home kitchens of Wisconsinites everywhere. Enjoy a bottle of wine from the hand-picked selection or enjoy a nice quiet dinner in their private dining room.
Bistro 333's private dining room.
If you’re in the mood for drinks rather than dinner (or both), then cozy up to Bar 333 and enjoy one of their many freshly prepared cocktails by one of their Liquid Chefs. If the bar is not where you would like to sit, enjoy their spacious lobby with complimentary WiFi access while your cocktail servers take your order. Bar 333 also offers a food menu. The staff at Bistro/Bar 333 is eager to accommodate your every need.

A new pizza restaurant is now open Downtown.
Brick 3 quietly opened its doors Monday afternoon for lunch and dinner. But, their opening was not quiet at all. During our recent lunch visit on Monday afternoon, their dining area was packed to capacity and we even witnessed patrons taking advantage of their ‘curbside’ service.
Brick 3 is located at 1105-07 N. Old World Third St., inside the former space of the African Hut.
The curbside service works like this; Customer calls ahead and orders off the menu. Next, they pull up and park in front of Brick 3 (they have a designated parking area for curbside customers only) and call the restaurant to let them know they’re ready to pick-up their order.
The restaurant features four large flat screen plasma TV's for your sports viewing pleasure.
Brick 3′s menu features pizza (by the slice, by the pie, par-baked on request), salads, tap beer and soda.
Brick 3 serves food Sunday-Wednesday from 11am-Midnight and Thursday-Saturday from 11am-4am. To order pick-up or for more information please call 414-224-6040.

Stewps on S. 108th St.was aquired November 22, 2008 and reopened as the Soup Market on December 1, 2008
Stewps in Hales Corners is now the Soup Market.
The Soup Market, which already had two locations in the Milwaukee area opened its third store December 1, 2008. The Soup Market will offer the same soups on the same days as their original Bay View (2211 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.) location; cookies, hot & cold sandwiches, salads, quiche, etc. Everything you’d find in Bay View will be at the new store eventually, with the exception of their “pick three” soup combo.
Pictured above is the dining area at the Soup Market on Hwy 100.
The new store is located at 5301 South 108th Street in the space formerly occupied by Stewps.
The Soup Market produces 6 different soups, stews & chilis on a daily basis. With a repertoire of over 200 soups, they have plenty of varieties to please most people. Their standard three are available all the time. These include chicken noodle & chicken dumpling, both made from their own made-from-scratch chicken stock, all white meat chicken, fresh vegetables, noodles and made-from-scratch dumplings . They also do a chili that changes weekly.
The other 3 soup choices include a vegetarian selection (sometimes vegan, sometimes not), a cream soup, and a miscellaneous choice that could be an additional vegetarian soup, a chili, a stew, gumbo or broth soup.
The Soup Market also has a location inside The Milwaukee Public Market. Their Downtown location features a menu similar to their stores in Bay View and Hales Corners. They offer up to seven soups daily, as well as baked potatoes and baked sweet potatoes, cold sandwiches, and quiche.
