On this my first trip to Milwaukee my companion and I got up early and went to breakfast in the hotel we were staying at, the Intercontinental. We were seated by a large window that looked out at a city street. We both ordered the oatmeal brule. It was amazing. Healthy AND so gourmet good with slivers of apples and almonds, apricot compote and then caramelized, just like creme brule. Did I say amazing?? If breakfast was this high on the culinary charts, what would dinner be like? At first we thought we'd try something other than the hotel, but our day was so jam packed with sightseeing by the time we got back to our room a trip from the 5th to 2nd floor to dine sounded like a much better plan. Boy, was it! Again a wonderful window view, our server Becky was excellent, and the food (strip steak for my companion and for me extraordinary halibut with pea puree, asparagus, brown butter Hollandaise and cheddar mashed potatoes) was delicious. As was the dessert — apple pie with mascarpone ice cream and banana tiramisu. This is a must dining destination. I will be back. Soon.
