authentic local/ethnic food in Green Bay, WI area

Dear Chowhound,

I'm moving to De Pere, Wisconsin (a cute suburb of Green Bay, Wisconsin) and want to explore great local specialities.

I read other posts, some suggested Chilli Johns and the Titletown Brewing Company and that's helpful, but some, if I may be frank, are so *anti-Midwest* and well, snobby. I don't want to start up a whole set of posts again on this issue, but I found the tone of many posts about Wisconsin food really condescending to people who go to "Crapplebees," bad Asian restaurants and the like. Sure, not great food, though they provide real choices to people who don't have the luxury to think about rare (and often expensive food items) because they have to spend their time *working*. So, now that I'm off my soap box, I was hoping to focus on German, Polish, Norwegian specialities like bratwurst, fish frys, fish boils, etc--indigenous ethnic food (there are also many Indian reservations as well). Or new ethnic communities like the Hmong Asian food shops or Latino taquerias springing up? Or Wisconsin specific locales like supper clubs, custard haunts, cheese shops, breweries?

Anything like this within the Green Bay or 1 hourish vicinity (Appleton, Oshkosh, Sheboygan, Door County) would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
George Karlyn
