In honor of actor Johnny Depp and the rest of the film crew for the Wisconsin-filmed John Dillinger feature "Public Enemies," Kincaid's Restaurant, 1110 N. Old World 3rd St., has temporarily renamed its French dip sandwich as the "Wisconsin French Depp."
All profits from the $13 sandwich, which features rock salt-roasted prime rib, Wisconsin white cheddar cheese, pickled onions, freshly grated horseradish sauce and house-made au jus, will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin.
The "Public Enemies" crew is currently filming in Downtown Milwaukee.
"Johnny Depp and his crew are shooting right down the road from us on Old World Third Street, so we thought we'd give a warm -- and tasty -- Milwaukee welcome," said Janor Bourgerie, general manager of Kincaid's Restaurant. "We also know that Johnny Depp has a special place in his heart for children's charities, so making this donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin just made sense."
OnMilwaukee.com staff writer Julie Lawrence grew up in Wauwatosa and has lived her whole life in the Milwaukee area.
As any “word nerd” can attest, you never know when inspiration will strike, so from a very early age Julie has rarely been seen sans pen and little notebook. At the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee it seemed only natural that she major in journalism. When OnMilwaukee.com offered her an avenue to combine her writing and the city she knows and loves in late 2004, she knew it was meant to be. Around the office, she answers to a plethora of nicknames, including “Lar,” (short for “Larry,” which is short for “Lawrence”) as well as the mysteriously-sourced “Bill Murray.”
