First of two parts
Small restaurants need your support to make it through the pandemic.
And you need to eat.
So why not fulfill both needs by ordering food at one of Milwaukee’s locally owned eateries?
At the start of the pandemic, many restaurants struggled to survive. The stay-at-home order meant that restaurants were restricted to pickup and delivery options. A year later, restaurants can now offer dine-in services as long as they continue with mask mandates and social distancing measures.
Below is a list of eateries located on Milwaukee’s North Side.
