It's time for Dining Month, presented by Deer District and its spooky Halloween-themed alter ego, Fear District. Throughout the month of October, we'll be serving up fun and fascinating content about all things food. The signature dish, however, is our 2019 Best of Dining poll, who's winners we will dish out all month long. Get hungry, Milwaukee!


For the eighth year in a row, Casablanca has won top honors from OnMilwaukee readers for its casually elegant Mediterranean atmosphere and fine Middle Eastern cuisine. 

With a massive menu ranging from hummus to falafel, shawarma to kabobs – plus steaks, salads, sandwiches, wraps and burgers and a range of desserts – the restaurant, which was founded in 1987 as "The Sahara Inn," and which opened a Brookfield location in 2018, has something fresh for just about everyone. 

Don't miss the incredible lunch buffet.

This year, OnMilwaukee's editorial staff and Lori Fredrich agreed that Damascus Gate was a pick to click, too.
