Tess

Described by OnMilwaukee.com as "a warm and relaxing getaway that's close to all the East Side action," Tess occupies a renovated Victorian on the Milwaukee River's east bank. Chef Martin Magana and his team man the kitchen, marrying locally sourced ingredients with time-tested counterparts: sage with sausage, strawberries with arugula, and potatoes with beef. Although the chefs adjust the menu seasonally, they maintain a consistently robust wine list and artisan beer collection. Tess's modestly sized dining room opens up to a garden patio, which then opens up to Narnia, but only if you have the proper armoire.

Customer Reviews

Go during good weather to enjoy the outdoor patio seating.

Tess is a neighborhood gem! I particularly like to eat there during the summer when the patio is open.

Everything was delicious, our dinner, cocktails, even the warm French bread! The outdoor patio is charming and secluded. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable, informative and helpful without being intrusive. Can't wait to go back!
