Experience 1960’s Fine Dining with Modern Flair at Buttermint Fine Dining & Cocktails

9 March 2022

Did you know that restaurants, as we know them today, were dreamed up and launched in the 1960s? With those original dining establishments as their inspiration, Buttermint Fine Dining & Cocktails is serving up a throwback with a little modern-day flair. Because everyone deserves a memorable dining experience or epic date night once in a while, right? It’s totally worth the 15-minute drive to Shorewood!

Their menu changes seasonally based upon what’s fresh. But, they always have a few raw bar favorites that are perfect to start. Try the tinned clams featuring potato cream. In the 1960s, canned food was huge, so this is a tasty ode to historic favorites. Indulge in a veal sweetbread sauteed with mushrooms or pan-roasted elk loin with candied sweet potatoes, escarole, and black currant bordelaise for your entrees. Pair your meal with a famous Schlitz beer, aka “the beer that made Milwaukee famous”, or a Buttermint signature old-fashioned! Cheers to a one-of-a-kind dining experience.
