Milwaukee's best Middle Eastern, 2010: Tulip


The votes are in, and the winners have been selected for OnMilwaukee's Best Dining 2010. The results of this readers' poll, including an editors' pick, are available in this series of articles that run all October long during Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com.

Since the first OnMilwaukee.com Dining Month survey, Casablanca has been the definitive favorite Middle Eastern restaurant.

The streak is over as Tulip, 364 E. Erie St., ran away with the title, taking nearly 40 percent of the votes.

The 3-year-old restaurant offers a wide variety of lamb, chicken and beef entrees as well as seafood and pasta dishes. Appetizers include favorites such as grape leaves, hummus, feta cheese rolls and eggplant puree.

With live music Wednesday, Friday and Saturday plus an American inspired Sunday brunch, Tulip successfully brings Mediterranean flavors to the Third Ward.

Here at OnMilwaukee.com, we're pretty big Tulip fans, too, so it also got our editors' choice.

The actually TURNED THE LIGHTS OFF on us while we were eating lunch! Apparently they close at 2:00 for lunch - it was 1:40!!!! I have eaten in hundreds of restaurants in many cities, states, and countries and this was the first time I've ever experienced that. When we asked the waiter what the heck - he was very nonchalant and said, "oh, they're on a timer and we close at 2" with no apology. We were not the only diners there I might add. Needless to say we were not even offered coffee, much less dessert. I will never go back there. The shame of it is - the food was quite good, altho' the soup was cold and they had run out of a salad we had ordered.

Absolutely right choice... Anyway, thinking a different decision would be senseless. I suggest everyone to visit this restaurant (sorry; "the best restaurant") which will give you unforgotten tastes while listening to live music. Also you are gonna be addicted to this place because of the sincere owners and professional workers. Just take a look for nice memories...
