Birch + Butcher

Contemporary Midwestern Cuisine

At Birch + Butcher, we sear, roast, grill + smoke in Milwaukee’s only open-fire hearth.  Using both primitive + modern cooking styles with vegetables, fish + meat true to the Midwest, we create dishes that are nostalgically comfortable + inspiring.

Local. Regional.
Extraordinary.

Dinner is casual + shareable. Begin with a spread of cheese, charcuterie + fresh baked bread. Seasonal side dishes complement main dishes + platters.  Our beers are local, the wine list is completely domestic, + our cocktails are extraordinary.

The best we have to offer comes from not-so-far-away.

The Butcher Shop

Open daily at 7:30 am!  Happily serving Dark Matter Coffee from Chicago, Underground Meats from Madison plus other treats from local bakers, farmers, creameries, + breweries near Milwaukee.

It’s casual counter service so take your time with friends, clients + co-workers over coffee, breakfast + lunch. (+ free wi-fi!)

Reviews

“Now and then, a restaurant comes along with a dish so delicious that you want to tell all your friends to go there, especially for that dish, the It dish.

That restaurant right now is Birch + Butcher, and that dish is the whole chicken, roasted on the wood-fired hearth. ”

Milwaukee Journal SentinalFood plus fire is perfect mix at Birch + Butcher

“The focal point of the restaurant is its open kitchen, which features a Milwaukee first: a wood-fired hearth where numerous dishes are lovingly coaxed to smoky perfection.”

OnMilwaukee.comWood-fired delights await at Birch + Butcher

“Delicious food that is easy to share. The aromas in the restaurant are amazing, especially if you sit near the hearth!”
