We lost another one.
 
I just wrote about them in post #385, but sadly Karl Ratzsch has announced their closing.

Carol Deptolla at JSOnline reports:
Karl Ratzsch, a longtime fixture of Milwaukee's dining culture, has closed less than a year after it was re-opened, chef-owner Thomas Hauck said Sunday.
 
It was one of the few remaining Milwaukee restaurants emblematic of the city's German heritage.
 
"It was my greatest hope that I could take this restaurant into the future and take it to a new generation, without it being lost," Hauck said in a news release. "Unfortunately due to many factors, I am no longer able to sustain keeping Karl Ratzsch open.”
 
“We put everything we had into this dream and it is with a heavy heart I have to let this go," he said.
This is very sad, and a reminder to eat at these restaurants while they remain in business.

While I never ate there, hopefully Ratzch's recipes will find their way onto the menus of other restaurants.

Here is another opportunity to eat at a good price at a restaurant in a Duncan Hines' recommended location. Bacchus is in the space that once housed the Hines recommended Fleur de Lis and remains an outstanding restaurant. On April 28 you will have the opportunity to purchase a $100 dining certificate for $50 through the Mark Belling Dining Club. The certificates go fast, usually selling out within 1 minute.
 
With the closing of Karl Ratzsch, and promotional discounts at Bacchus and Heaven City, I am starting to have worries about the future of fine dining in the Milwaukee area.
