This morning, the Bartolotta Restaurant Group announced that it will convert its Joey Gerard's Supper Club location in Mequon, 11120 N. Cedarburg Rd., into its second Mr. B's, A Bartolotta Steakhouse location.
"Feedback from our guests prompted our decision," said Joe Bartolotta, president and co-owner of the Bartolotta Restaurant Group, in a press release. "We have been asked for years when we would open a second Mr. B’s restaurant and decided that Mequon was the perfect location. Listening to the feedback from our guests, we realized they were gravitating toward our steakhouse offerings. This brought us to the conclusion that Mr. B’s would be a better fit for the marketplace and our loyal guests."
Joey Gerard's in Mequon will remain open until renovations begin in August. The new Mr. B's location is expected to open in mid-September.
Joey Gerard's Mequon executive chef Amber Dorszynski will continue to run the new Mr. B's kitchen, drawing from her past experience working at the original Mr. B's location in Brookfield and working with Bartolotta Restaurant Group corporate executive chef Adam Siegel.
"The restaurant will exhibit the same classic steakhouse atmosphere that we have had so much fun creating in Brookfield over the past 18 years," Joe Bartolotta added in the release. "We look forward to bringing Mr. B’s to Mequon and being a part of the community for years to come."
Meanwhile, the other Joey Gerard's Supper Club, located at 5601 Broad St. in Greendale, will remain the same, according to the Bartolotta Restaurant Group's release.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
