“The restaurant group, which owns and operates Trocadero and Redlight, Café Hollander, Nomad World Pub and most recently Fat Abbey Biercafé, saw a great opportunity to become part of the mix of businesses that are making Lincoln and KK a thriving dining and entertainment destination,” Ald. Zielinski said.
In a recent news article, partners Eric Wagner and Mike Eitel said the thriving, dynamic neighborhood and a corner building full of character were too much to pass up. “It definitely fits our model,” Wagner said, adding: “we absolutely love the idea of breathing new life into such a great building.”
“Alderman Tony Zielinski’s input and support were contributing factors as we made the decision to invest in Bay View,” Wagner said.
Existing businesses in the area include next door neighbor Sugar Maple, Café Lulu, Riviera Maya, Guanajuato, Highbury Pub, Future Green, Collector's Edge Comics, Wildflour Bakery, Stone Creek Coffee Shop, Maritime Bank, Babe's Ice Cream, Omega Restaurant and Broad Vocabulary.
