Executive Chef Justin Winkler joins FOX6 WakeUp and makes cheesy truffle eggs bruchetta. Favorites like the Italian Zeppoles and pecan praline french toast are also on deck. Brunch at Stella Van Buren is served from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday.
The menu, is modern yet comfortable, featuring steakhouse staples like New York Strip, bone-in ribeye and skirt steak alongside Italian dishes, from classic spaghetti and meatballs to Yellowfin tuna with eggplant caponata. Virtually everything is cooked in-house, including fresh pastas (made daily), sauces and desserts.
Stella Van Buren is a modern Italian-American restaurant located at the new Westin Milwaukee hotel downtown. Stella brings Milwaukee a fresh take on the traditional steakhouse dining experience, combined with a destination-worthy wine and bourbon selection. The restaurant concept combines the flavors of a classic Italian kitchen with American steakhouse influences, all set in a modern space that appeals to today’s diner.
"The new Westin hotel, which is set to open next summer in downtown Milwaukee, has announced plans to include an Italian-themed steakhouse on the ground floor level."
"The Italian restaurant will have an open kitchen and a bar that's separate from the main dining room. The bar's focus will be craft cocktails and wines by the glass, Hess said."
“Unlike traditional steakhouses, Stella Van Buren is light, airy, warm and welcoming,” said Denise Ploof, general manager, Stella Van Buren. “The atmosphere is both energetic and approachable.”
