St. Paul Fish Company

So, the more I frequent St. Paul's at the Milwaukee Public Market, the more I like the place. Maybe to note, first, too, is the fact that the Market is finally coming into it's own. It seems that vendors have fallen into place (with the exception of the soon loss of El Rey), and there is just a good vibe everytime I'm there. That being said, my husband and I decided to enjoy the sunshine on Saturday and take a nice walk to the Market to buy some eats for our impending V-day dinner. The place was hopping, and we were unable to resist the temptation to enjoy a mid-day snack, so we sat down at a table in the new "dining" area of St. Paul's. About 30 minutes, $1 Schlitz taps, clam chowder, and basket of fried oysters later, we were completely happy. The food was great, the beer was tasty, and we were totally satisfied. I must say, also, that we've hit up St. Paul's on other various days, and it's only getting better. We've done the raw bar at the counter, which was grand. We're still needing to do the $12.95 lobster dinner (I think it's offered every night, now?). The single downfall that I've experience, though, was the Taco Tuesday special. The fish was good, but all in all, it was a bit dry. I noticed that the menu has expanded, so I'm excited to work my way through it.

 Basically, I just wanted to say that I'm proud of the public market, and am looking forward to evenings and lunches spent with some tasty eats, good wine or beer, and possibly even a game or two at Thief.

Also agreed. And if you haven't tried Good Harvest - the organic market sister store to the Market- you should. With El Rey's leaving you may have to anyway to get fresh produce. Organic is always a little pricier, but parking is shared with the Public Market, the staff is helpful and you can find great new packaged organics to try in addition to the produce.

Agreed. Great post and nice to finally see that jsonline found out about Thief Wine today too. I've been reading about Thief on OMC for months. Anyway, get to the Market if you haven't been there lately. The chocolate place, Kehr's, is amazing. They had a huge line on Friday and Saturday for Valentine's. Best turtles ever.

35497 Agreed - there was a great story in the Journal today too about the Thief Wine market. It's nice that the market is offering a good mix of food/drink. Hope it continues to suceed!
