Milwaukee, WI: 2Mesa

From the genius of local Chef Michael Feker comes a new Mexican place on Milwaukee’s west side, in the building that once held Birdie’s Café.

Feker is perhaps best known in the area for his restaurant IL Mito, in Wauwatosa, serving Italian and Mediterranean cuisine in a casual fine dining setting.

His new venture is 2Mesa, which represents the Spanish words “tu mesa,” meaning “your table.” Chef Feker and his wife want to be your table away from home.

Tucked in the neighborhood, 2Mesa is just what this location needed. Breakfast is served daily from 7:30am to 2pm, with lunch service from 11am to close and dinner beginning at 5pm.

We had our first visit to 2Mesa on a Saturday morning, around 11am, so we had our choice between breakfast and brunch.

After much deliberation, we chose the Divorced Omelet-organic eggs complimented with herbs, cheese, ham, and spinach and topped with both green and red sauces. Served with Mexican potatoes and beans.

Of course, we also had to try their Bloody Mary.

The stats:

Spice: Just the right amount of spice.

Mix: Housemade with your choice of tequila or vodka

Chaser: Full-Size bottle of Miller Lite or Corona

Fixin’s: 2 Olives, Lemon, Lime and salted rim

Price: $8?

This Bloody Mary was the perfect consistency and tasted very light and refreshing. However, it is quite petite! It was almost like having a beer with a Bloody Mary chaser. Now there’s certainly nothing wrong with that… we’ll just have to order two next time!

And there will definitely be a next time because this place is something special. We love the cozy atmosphere and the food was delicious and priced just right.

Thank you for bringing a great place like this to the neighborhood, Chef Feker!
