We are hounds in Los Angeles area that will be visiting Milwaukee for the first time. We are very excited to be heading there but, won't have much time to try much, as most of our trip is being planned by other people.
We are on our own for one to two lunches and would like to stay close to the hotel. I'd be willing to venture out further if public transportation is REALLY EASY (like the San Francisco BART or NYC Metro) but, if it isn't then I won't bother as we don't have that much time anyway.
I'm dying to try a good custard as there is NOTHING like it to be found here. I've heard that Leon's is the place to be but am not sure about its proximity to the hotel...
For lunch, I'd like to try a place that offers food that, again, has nothing like it to be found in Los Angeles.
So, what are some good places for Milwaukee's regional specialties/lunch and custard that are close to the hotel?
