Milwaukee Brunch Reviews
I gathered group of friends to come with me for this brunch outing. Chris, David, Jason and Tony all met me at Rustico one Sunday morning. We all had to park in various locations around the Third Ward, but that is the norm for any restaurant in this tightly-packed neighborhood. Located on the west side of Water Street, Rustico's weathered wood sign gives the impression that this restaurant has been in place since the building was erected in the 1880's.
We took a moment to look over the menu and tried to figure out who would be ordering what. We were all very indecisive this morning, and we all wanted to try something different. Jesse was very knowledgeable of the menu and answered all our questions while we were trying to determine what we wanted to have brunch.
If you are in the Third Ward area and are looking for a brunch with an Italian influence, think about checking out Rustico. For around $15 per person, this restaurant will satisfy your brunch craving. Other than a lack of parking, this restaurant has some great specials on the other nights of the week, so think about stopping by for their pizza.
Until next time, hope you had a great weekend and happy brunching!
