Mason Street Grill celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2017. And, as part of the festivities, the restaurant will be getting a refresh.

To accommodate updates to the restaurant's décor, the venue will be will be temporarily closed beginning Sunday, Jan. 22 and will re-open on Thursday, Feb. 9.

Changes will include new wood floors, updated seating and an upgraded wine room display. Linda Marcus, local designer and artist, will also be curating a collection of both local and international art to be displayed throughout the restaurant.

However, one of the most notable changes will be made to the kitchen counter, which will be divided in half to create two separate chefs’ counters, both of which will offer special menus available exclusively to those seated in the area.

In addition to the décor refresh, guests can also look forward to expanded beverage offerings including new wine selections and additions to Mason Street Grill’s whiskey and bourbon collections.

Watch OnMilwaukee for additional details as they develop.
