Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro Restaurant Review

: Only the Bartolotta family, who are legendary in the Milwaukee dining scene, would dare to create a quintessential French restaurant in the middle of a park. Overlooking Lake Michigan in a former pavilion, the restaurant features a menu of bistro classics and more elaborate (and expensive) contemporary specialties orchestrated by chef Adam Siegel. In the typical French manner, a different plat du jour is offered every day of the week. Entrées include pan-seared Strauss lamb loin with braised French green lentils, baby carrots and thyme-infused lamb jus; roasted wild striped sea bass with sautéed Swiss chard, puréed potatoes and light beef jus; and Dover sole, served with French beans and oyster mushrooms-accented potatoes (it's filleted tableside). Pair your meal with one of a hundred French wines. The elaborate Sunday brunch is a local favorite --- for good reason. Fare ranges from light (basket of croissants with preserves and salade a la niçoise are just two of the examples) to heavy (grilled hanger steak with Roquefort butter and a side of fries). Desserts include the tarte du jour with seasonal fruit, and Valrhona chocolate mousse in a praline crust with coconut sorbet and saffron crème anglaise.
