I've been caregiving for my mother 24/7 (she's in hospice) and am getting a 5 night break -- decided to hit Milwaukee because of a positive experience there several years ago. I'm staying near downtown (Ambassador Hotel) and need recommendations for great places to eat. My only restriction is not too expensive (which I guess I would put at over $40 per meal), just great food, will consider anything but am especially interested in places are unique, I love ethnic food, and also would love a great pizza place -- I had a stuffed pizza the last time I was there that was heavenly but don't remember where. Vegetarian-oriented places appreciated as well as more meat-oriented restaurants. Fancy, casual, doesn't matter, all ideas welcome, as long as the food is great.

Also important to me is good service -- I've eaten alone as a single woman and tip well and appreciate places that recognize that every table should be treated the same. (Along those lines, a romantic place with lots of couples would probably be a bit awkward).

I'm heading up to Cedarburg for a day, too, so if you can recommend a nice place for lunch there I'd appreciate that.

Finally, does anyone know about the Polish Festival's food? I understand it's that weekend -- I know nothing about Polish food but if it's worth trying, please give me some suggestions on what to try.

Many,many thanks!!
