For the sixth straight year, October is Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com, presented by Concordia University. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2012."
This week's Social Circle question received a huge response. Surprisingly, people had no problem coming up with one Milwaukee restaurant that would be their destination of choice for their last supper.
Responses ranged from Sanford to George Webb's and just about every type of restaurant in between.
