Chandeliers and linen-clad tables lend a bit of glitz to the warm, welcoming Old Town Serbian Gourmet Restaurant. The menu that gets passed out in that friendly atmosphere features flavorful homestyle Serbian cuisine that unites the Midwest with the Old World, promising a smorgasbord of traditional Serbian stews, dumplings, pilafs, and cutlet entrees crafted from locally farmed produce. The spread ranges from multi-course feasts of chevapchichi and wholesome meals of fresh fish or stuffed cabbage. That diverse selection allows the menu to captivate the palate with dishes that are simultaneously exotic and familiar, similar to having George Clooney move in above the garage.
Ariel’s work has appeared on runways, theater stages, and TVs, but he seldom sets foot on stage or in front of a camera. The stylist, color specialist, and owner of Ariel Hair Studio has been tapped to style and color hair for fashion models, the cast of The Phantom of the Opera, and numerous television personalities. He also spent a decade in the Miami Financial District and mastered the art of crafting polished hairstyles that toe the line between professional and sexy. He’s brought his experience to his salon in Milwaukee, where he and his staff provide haircuts, coloring, and chemical services to clients and professional models prepping to strut down the runway or stand still on the airport's moving walkways.
