Milwaukee’s Grenadier’s Restaurant hosted presidents and, throughout its 29 years, stood out not only in Milwaukee, but also competed with Chicago’s finest restaurants.
In 1978, the Chicago Tribune wrote, “With all its fine dining rooms, Chicago has nothing, except perhaps for its exlusive private clubs, quite like Milwaukee’s Grenadier’s Restaurant.” The Grenadier Restaurant was my dad’s favorite place to dine. It was very British and very formal and fine dining at its best. Coat and tie a must. It has been missed since its closing.
Today are a few of the rare recipes collected from this famous restaurant, including the dish Owner and Chef Knut Apitz served to President George Bush and the game recipe’s Grenadier’s Executive Chef Charles Weber provided to the Chicago Tribune.
