It’s more important than ever to support our local restaurants. And there’s no better way to do so than making a commitment to patronize them throughout the year. To guide you on your journey, I’ve composed a list of 52 restaurants (one for each week of 2022) that should be on your Milwaukee restaurant bucket list. View the full list here.

Seems there's always something new to enjoy at C-Viche, a restaurant that aspires to showcase the wonders of Ibero-American fare through dishes from Argentina and Mexico to Ecuador and Peru. 

The daily menu includes a variety of ceviche offerings include styles from Peru, Mexico and Ecuador. But don't miss the ceviche of the day, which is always something fresh and new like Nikkei-style hamachi or the the beautifully presented ceviche peruana pictured above. 

Thanks to a solid cocktail program, you can pair up any one of those dishes with a refreshing margarita, paloma or pisco sour anytime you feel the need for a tropical escape.

Move on to larger plates and you'll find plenty to try, from Argentinian steak and Mexican tlacoyos (stuffed masa cakes), to Peruvian fusion dishes like tallarin saltado (Peruvian fried rice and stir-fried noodles, both of which reflect the influence of Asia on Peru). 

Recommended: Ceviche specials; grilled octopus; half pollo a la brasa (Peruvian rotisserie chicken)
