If you haven't walked or driven past The Moderne, 1141 Old World 3rd St. (corner of Juneau Ave. and Old World Third St.), you really should. The 31 floor development is truly impressive and, while not even open yet, has already changed the vibe, look and feel of the area.
Today, there's great news in a scoop from BizTimes.com that iconic Chicago restaurant, Carson's Prime Steaks and Famous BBQ, will open in The Moderne's first floor in October. Carson's currently has two locations. One on Wells St. in Downtown Chicago and a second in Deerfield.
I had heard several months ago that The Moderne project was pursing a big name restaurant, and this is definitely a huge name and a coup¬†for the development and for Downtown Milwaukee.
Matt Rinka, a great local architect, is designing the space. Rinka also designed the building.
Carson's has numerous accolades under its belt, and not only from Windy City locals and media but Esquire, Food Network, Business Week and more. Read all about it here.¬†
The Moderne is on track for a September opening. Be ready for the bibs, finger licking and barbecue of Carson's in October.
Well I hope the Milwaukee location does better then the chicago counter part (http://www.yelp.com/biz/carsons-ribs-and-steaks-downtown-chicago)
It really sounds like it could go either way. That said Milwaukee does need more bbq
