This week, the Social Circle is talking meat. Specifically, we asked about their favorite meat dishes in Milwaukee restaurants. Vegetarians beware. Carnivores, if you aren't already hungry, you are about to be.
Pamela Anderson: "Arracherra at Cafe la Paloma."
Michael Barry: "Those buttery hamburgers at Solly's are pretty nice. Same at Kopp’s."
Robin Barry: "Braise – pork belly bun on a stick."
Deborah Benjamin: "Benji’s corned beef."
Kelly Briskie: "Mo's has the best beef tenderloin, hands down."
Suze Cameron: "Milwaukee Steakhouse, porterhouse cut. Get a weekend job to pay for it because it is worth it."
Charlie Chaperas: "Jackson Grill. Black Angus bone-in ribeye."
Shaun Cross: "Lamb chops at Hotel Metro's restaurant."
Leah Delaney: "I'm partial to the classic filet mignon at Eddie Martini’s."
Matthew Eells: "Spiedini at Divino on Murray. Since County Clare doesn't serve its tenderloin Shannon anymore it's the closest thing I've had to meat candy."
Mehrdad J-Dalamie: "The best steak ever and sadly no longer was Yani's on the corner of Mason and Jackson. Now, I'll vote for Mason Street Grill."
Damien Jaques: "Carson's ribs."
Rich Kerhin: "Ashley's brisket – the one on Center Street."
Mike Kohls: "Carnevor – any steak they have."
Beth Eaton Knepeler: "Steak au poivre at Pastiche."

Dave Mikolajek: "The pepperoni special at Balistreri's and Balistreri's Bluemound Inn."
Amy Mizalko: "Chicken cutlet at Cafe Vocar."
Jeff Pawlinski: "The Steak Out in Greendale has the most underrated filet in southeastern Wisconsin. Char broiled, juicy, tender and oh so delish."
Sukey Pett: "Jake's pastrami."
Rick Phelps: "The Range Line Inn’s roast duck melts in your mouth.
Dax Phillips: "Bone-in ribeye from Five O'Clock Club."
Don Sefton: "The Greek Maiden Burger at Elsa's still rocks my world!"
Richard Schwab: "Bulgogi at Seoul Korean restaurant."
Jeff Sherman: "It’s hard to find something more tasty that Argentinean beef at La Merenda, but there are a few others …"
