Meglio Pizzeria, 1888 N. Humboldt Ave., is closed for now.

The East Side eatery, which opened in summer 2007, has closed the retail side of its business but still offers its catering services.

No word yet on if or when the restaurant side will reopen, but stay tuned to for updates in the coming months.

Contrary to her natural state of being, Renee Lorenz is a total optimist when it comes to Milwaukee. Since beginning her career with, her occasional forays into the awesomeness that is the Brew City have turned into an overwhelming desire to discover anything and everything that's new, fun or just ... "different."

Expect her random musings to cover both the new and "new-to-her" aspects of Miltown goings-on, in addition to periodically straying completely off-topic, which usually manifests itself in the form of an obscure movie reference.
