This casual, yet beautifully decorated spot in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward opened in 2011 and quickly became a local favorite. Vintage furnishings and repurposed wood make the restaurant feel like a hip hangout that’s been around for ages. Benelux refers to the countries of Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, and the menu contains favorites from that region, including the famous pannenkoeken, a light pancake served with a variety of toppings. If that’s not enough to convince you that this locale is a hopping sensation, sample some of the nearly 200 unique brews on tap. In the warmer months, the rooftop patio is a delightful spot.
