For the eighth straight year, October is Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com, presented by Locavore, the newest restaurant at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2014."
In 2012, Food & Wine Magazine named Mr. B's - A Bartolotta Steakhouse one of 45 best steakhouses in the United States. Apparently, the readers of OnMilwaukee.com paid attention to that list, because two years later, you voted Mr. B’s as Milwaukee’s best steak for the first time ever.
In fact, Mr. B’s, 18380 W. Capitol Dr. in Brookfield received almost three times the votes of runner-up, the Five O’Clock Club. We, the editors of OnMilwaukee.com, selected Carnevor as our favorite.
Our own Bobby Tanzilo visited Mr. B’s shortly after it moved to its new location. He wrote:
"When the steak cart wheeled over, it created a conundrum, since there were so many alluring choices. In the end, my dining companion and I each selected combos that paired 6-ounce filets with (in my case) bacon wrapped scallops ($34.95) and in his, a tender piece of salmon ($35.90).
"The steaks were cooked to perfection and my only complaint about the scallops was that they were too rich. But that was my choice, so I fault no one but myself for having eyes bigger than my stomach."
Currently, steaks range in price from an 8 oz. filet for $35.95, to $48.95, for a 28 filet and New York strip cooked on the bone. That’s a lower price point than some of the other nominees on our list, and certainly a value for a place stamped with the Bartolotta pedigree.
While meat is the focus, don't shy away from the seafood and optional sides. The wedge and spinach salads are a great way start to your experience at Mr. B's, the brussel sprouts you hated as a kid are now a delight, and the desserts you may not room for should still be had.
