There’s another BelAir Cantina landing in the Milwaukee area.
The new location will be a featured attraction at The Corners of Brookfield, a 750,000-square foot premier lifestyle center located at I-94 and Barker Road in the Town of Brookfield.
"We have had our eye on BelAir for some time as the type of regional favorite eatery that people will flock to and that will help us create a sense of community for our guests and residents alike," said Robert Gould, vice president of U.S. Operations for IM Properties in a statement released today.
The new location will be at the northwest end of The Corners Market Square, which will also house Anthropologie, Evereve, Café Hollander, Lululemon and L.L. Bean.
The new restaurant, which is expected to open next spring will seat up to 250 customers and will feature a prominent central bar, as well as an intimate patio facing the Market Square.
"The Corners provides an environment that we wanted to be a part of," said Kristyn Eitel, partner of BelAir Cantina Brookfield, Inc. "Expanding west into the Brookfield area is something our patrons have asked us to do, and this opportunity provides the atmosphere our diners have come to know and love."
