Season's eatings! The weather may be getting colder, but Dining Month on OnMilwaukee is just cooking up, dishing out your winning picks in this year's Best of Dining poll. Dining Month is brought to you by Fein Brothers, your premier food service equipment and supply dealer in Wisconsin since 1929. Congratulations to all of the winners, and happy eating for all those who voted! See all the winners for the month so far here.


One Third Ward hotspot, two founding chefs named Dan (Van Rite and Jacobs) and now three straight years as king of the best Chinese category in OnMilwaukee's Best of Dining poll. 

The Third Ward restaurant, famed in Cream City for its unique spins on Chinese and Asian-inspired dishes, scored literally double the votes of the second place finisher, Emperor of China – which was actually the last Chinese restaurant not named Dandan to win this category, back in 2015.

Meanwhile, No. 1 Chinese in Bay View, Jing's (the OnMilwaukee editors' picks) and Huan Xi (home of the peculiarly spicy hot pot) round out the rest of the tightly packed top five, while our food expert Lori Fredrich went with Sze Chuan. 

2. Emperor of China
