The two veteran chefs behind DanDan, Dan Jacobs and Dan Van Rite, recently opened a French cuisine restaurant in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward. Classic and modern flavors are showcased through a variety of hors d’oeuvre, small plates, salads and entrees. One of the most popular items on the menu is the signature Duck à l’Orange for two. The food is crafted with French technique and farm fresh ingredients. Other popular menu items include the duck confit, chicken liver éclair, grilled beet, and the lyonnaise salad.
Though the restaurant has an elegant setting, there is décor influenced by the 1970s rock era in the dining room. The playful and vibrant room is often used for special occasions. Casual lunches and dinners can also be enjoyed in the bar area.
