Get your sunblock ready. Moxie Food + Drink, 501 E. Silver Spring Dr. in Whitefish Bay, will soon have a brand new patio.

Owners Tamela Greene and Anne Marie Arroyo announced today that the patio will officially open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:45 a.m. on Friday, June 29, just in time for lunch service. 

The patio, which will seat 30 guests on a first-come, first-served basis, is located on the west side of the building. It will showcase a lush green space surrounded by arborvitae and tall ornamental grasses, with a patio surface made from eco-friendly recycled rubber.

Moxie is open for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. Hours are Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. (the kitchen closes at 10 p.m.) and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club. 

When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
