Milwaukee Hotels/Dining

My wife and I are getting away from the kids for a night. We want to ride the Hank Aaron bike trail near downtown Milwaukee Sunday am.

Any recommendations for Hotel-Mid-Range, possibly pricey if it really worth it.

Dining-As long as its good and worth the price, money is no object.

Karl raches for German food

Pieces of 8 ( if it's still there) for a fine dining establishment (been years since I've been to mke, but those 2 were about the best that I've been to while I lived there)

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

Hotel Metro is kind if a cool old art deco hotel. Nice bars on the first floor and on the roof. I haven't stated anywhere else since I live there.

What kind of food do you like? I don't have a lot of recommendations there since it's been a while since I've spent much time downtown and my favorite sushi joint closed.

Pieces of Eight has been gone for a while. It's now owned by the Bartollottas and it's called Harbor House.

+1 on the view and atmosphere, and the food is interesting, but I found it to be inconsistent. I worked half a block away for a few months and got lunch there a lot. It's also on the edge of a really bad neighborhood so don't venture too far north of there.

Along those lines, Hinterland Gastropub (which is downtown) is great, and I haven't been there in a while but a place called Crazy Water (Walkers Point, south of downtown, teeny tiny place) was a favorite.

Thanks for the suggestions. Root looks like our Sunday am brunch spot.

Chophouse might be dinner tonight.
