For the seventh straight year, October is Dining Month on, presented by the restaurants of Potawatomi. 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 2013."

In 2011, I wrote a blog titled "Seven Milwaukee restaurants that I really miss."

I still miss these seven, but as we come close to the end of Dining Month I thought of a few more. So, here they are. 

Do you have some of your own?  Let us know. 

Broadway Bar and Grill
Broadway Bar & Grill, 223 N. Broadway, closed in 2001.  Its time had come, but more than 10 years later many long of a similar type diner to return to the Third Ward.  Greasy burgers, amazing egg salad, a wonderful counter culture and friendly family ownership all made Broadway Bar and Grill a big hit.  Today, Bourbon & Tunns occupies the space. It was Palms Bistro until last December.

Palermo Villa
OnMilwauke has a big soft spot for our long time East Side neighbor, Palermo Villa.  Its legacy and tradition continue at Divino, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t miss Kathy and Palermo Villa

Wells Street Station
Remember Wells Street Station?  Located at 117 E. Wells St., it was a casual and fun place to eat that closed in the early 2000s.  Nothing against China Gourmet that currently inhabits this Downtown space but Wells Street Station had a unique vibe and fun bar and met a fast, casual niche that's still somewhat lacking in Downtown. 

Michigan Street Diner

The death of the lunch counter is somewhat sad.  Yet, Milwaukee still offers plenty of pull a stool up to the bar or counter eating options.  Michigan Street Diner closed in 2011 to help pave the way for the Hilton Garden In at the historic Loyalty Building.  The owner, Gary Kuhn, settled a dispute with the  hotel developer and told me and others that he’d open again elsewhere.  It hasn’t happened yet, and I miss the diner’s bread, egg salad and wonderful BLTs.
