The Eater returns with another profile and heat map of "eight newish restaurants that have been garnering some serious buzz."  The site focused on Milwaukee in July 2013, but today writer Todd Lazarski comes back to Brew City to discuss what's hot in Milwaukee's dining scene.

Eight of Milwaukee’s newest restaurants made the list including some of my favorites such as All Purpose (AP), Blue Jacket and Pizza Man.

Pizza Man is once again "new" to some of us, and I can’t get enough of the new space even with how much I still also miss the old one. All Purpose is by far my favorite restaurant in town right now, though I haven’t tried Ardent yet, and I can’t wait to.

Blue Jacket has one of the best cocktail lists in town, and the food to pair perfectly with it.

Black Sheep also made the "Heatmap" and you can watch for a story Wednesday from our Lori Fredrich on their recent menu changes. 

 What other restaurants do you think deserve to be in the "top new" list right now? Check out the others that made Eater’s list here, and happy eating Milwaukee.

Carolynn Buser is one of Milwaukee's loudest and most adamant cheerleaders (don't dare try to disagree). She's the primary voice behind much of's social media, and apologizes in advance if she can be too sarcastic at times.

What else? She's a wine lover, closet trashy novel reader, beauty supplies addict and devourer of cheese (shocker for a Wisconsin born and bred girl, right?). She's also a bit of a foodie, which is a word most of you hate, we know. So, you've probably seen her at one of the area's newest restaurant openings (and yes, she will share her opinions good or bad) or enjoying her newfound love, the Dark and Stormy, at a local pub.

All in all, Carolynn's a believer in positive thinking and will do her best to smack down your negative ones while writing about her city, her loves, quests and more.
