Lithuanian restaurants?

Is there a Lithuanian restaurant in Milwaukee? Couldn't find one when I Googled. A Lithuanian friend is planning a visit and since I'm originally from Milwaukee she asked if I knew.

I think Polish may be the closest we can get to Lithuanian.

I agree with Przyk re. Lituanian restaurants (or lack thereof) in MKE. Polish, OK. German, OK But no Lithuanian. Good ethnic food is hard to find. Even traveling in Europe one is overwhelmed by pizza and Chinese takeout to the point that authentic local cuisine is often being lost. The best you might do is Chicago - check out the menu at Grand Dukes near Midway airport in Chicago (Summit, really). http://www.granddukesrestaurant.com/

Not what you're looking for but a great Serbian place for Eastern European Food- Three Brothers in Bay View with good ratings.

No credit cards- bring cash.

To add to Oregon Slims post. If you're friend is heading to Chicago you may want to Consider Mabenka. We were there for the Chicago Marathon and had our post race meal there! Fabulous........fabulous service. The owner took time and spoke to me about the dishes as I'm Polish and it s a Polish/Lituanian restaurant. This restaurant is also locatd by Midway.

I am a Lth-Am from Milwaukee but living in Europe for the last 10 years. It is true that there are no lithuanian restaurants in Milwaukee. Grand Dukes, Mabenka and several others are in the Chicago area. However, many items on the Polish menu are very similar to Lithuanian food. I took a Lith born friend of mine to local Milw Polish place and we ate well. Try one of the local Polish restaurants in Milwaukee or head over to A and J deli on the south side and ask the people in there for black Lithuanian rye bread or similar and any other Lithuanian products that they may have or similar. Try to make a kugelis at home with wisconsin sour cream and bacon gravy. That should do the trick! Takes a bit of time but not so hard to do. Get recepie from the internet.
