Several times per week, someone asks me for a restaurant recommendation. I always offer a list of my favorites and love talking about the ever-changing dining business.

Yesterday, though, a friend asked me for a list of the "hottest" restaurants in the area. An easy answer on the 94-degree day was "all of them," but after thinking a bit and interpreting "hottest" to mean "most recently opened and still generating good buzz" I came up the following list:

C. 1880
Rumpus Room
The Noble
Odd Duck

I'm sure 8-twelve and Kanpai will be "hot" once they open and, of course, there are several other places around town that are always "hot."  We all have our favorites.  

What's your answer to this question? Chime in and tell us what's "hot" in your Milwaukee dining world.
