Birch + Butcher
Contemporary Midwestern cuisine cooked in an open, wood-fired hearth featuring an on-site butcher. Now open!
The gist: The focal point of this modern restaurant's dining room is an open flame cooking hearth, which gives the space a cozy feel, not to mention smell. Stop at the small attached retail space for aged beef, bakery, and other goodies.
The food: The hearth influences almost everything, including the dry-aged ribeye with burnt scallion mashed, bulgogi skirt steak with ramp kimchi, and grilled croutons in a refreshing heirloom tomato and melon salad. Brunch lovers shouldn't miss their flame-kissed modern menu.
The cost: Starters are $6-$16, mains run $26-$49, and weekend brunch is $5-$19.
How to order: Order online or call 414-323-7372 for pickup.
