Urban Spelunking: The Modjeska Theater

Once upon a time, The Modjeska Theater, 1134 W. Mitchell St., was a neighborhood movie palace, the big daddy of Mitchell Street, the second busiest thoroughfare in Milwaukee after Wisconsin Avenue. Now, after four dormant years, and decades after it ended its run as a movie house, Mitchell Street Development Opportunity Corporation is cleaning it up, with an eye toward re-opening in spring with a mix of movies, concerts and other live performances.

The Vanguard
Another long-awaited restaurant will open as early as next week. And it sounds like loads of delicious fun.

Pizza Man Waiter
As I walked through the large wooden door entrance, the aroma inside of Pizza Man on 2597 N. Downer Ave. was so intoxicating that it made my stomach quiver. This smell of Italian bliss, of course, stayed with me throughout my visit. Near the bar stood Tony Menzel, a waiter who has worked at Pizza Man since it re-opened in the summer of 2013 following a devastating fire.

Harbor House crab cakes
Last week, planning to write a feature about crab cakes, I sought out Zach Espinosa, chef at Harbor House. We ended up having an in-depth discussion of what makes a great crab cake, the sourcing of crab meat and much more, including a discussion of trends in seafood. So, like a great chef does with an unexpected delivery of a new ingredient, I called an audible and am sharing the entire conversation with you here.
