Inside Sake Tumi's main dining room and private banquet areas, guests sample everything from colorful sashimi to peppered tenderloin. During dinner, the menu is home to a variety of Japanese classics such as sushi rolls, as well as Korean barbecue dishes including beef bulgogi. Midday visitors can order up traditional bento boxes during lunch, which neatly pack soup, salad, and sides alongside various entrees.
The Allgauer’s menu offers a delicious twist on American comfort food. Courteous servers at the Milwaukee location cover tables in classic American fare such as an Angus NY strip steak layered in roasted portabella, blue-cheese gratin, Yukon mashed potatoes, and fresh spinach ($27) and potato-crusted salmon resting beside sautéed green beans and stone-ground mustard ($20). Press a jumbo button mushroom against your palate and savor its rich roasted-garlic, ham, and blue-cheese insides ($7 in Milwaukee), or crunch a jumbo crab cake with marinated peppers, arugula, bacon, and mustard ($12). A virgin shrimp cocktail ($10) spices up the evening without dampening driving abilities.
