The votes are in and the winners have been selected for OnMilwaukee's Best: Bars & Clubs, 2010. Find readers' results in 50 categories, including an editors' pick, in this series of articles that run daily in the Bars and Clubs section of OnMilwaukee.com.
The results came as no surprise to the editors here at OnMilwaukee.com. Pizza Man has won "best wine list" honors by large margins in this category for more years than we can count and 2010 was no exception.
What we didn't count on, obviously, was the tragedy that occurred Jan. 19. Pizza Man, along with the 10 apartments above it and neighbors Cush Lounge, Grecian Delight and Black and White Cafe, was completely destroyed by a six-alarm fire, which has since been ruled arson.
Pizza Man owners Mike and Deanna Amidzich say they plan to reopen Pizza Man in a new East Side location. In the meantime, its fans can celebrate this small victory as the bar and restaurant once again secures its ruling title as Milwaukee's favorite wine list. It's a gentle reminder of how great an institution the East Side icon has been to Milwaukee wine enthusiasts over the decades.
The pizzeria boasted a huge list, with more than 500 selections from California, Washington and Oregon available by the glass or by the bottle. It received the Wine Spectator's "Award of Excellence" more than a dozen times.
