Madison-based Noble Chef Hospitality announced today that it will open its first Milwaukee restaurant, to be called Rare Steakhouse, in the 17-story office tower that Irgens is building at 833 E. Michigan St. in downtown Milwaukee.
Irgens has said that it wanted to attract a “white tablecloth” restaurant to the ground floor of the building, called 833 East.
Rare Steakhouse will be a steak and seafood restaurant that will feature in-house dry aged Allen Brothers steaks and more than 400 different wines.
Noble Chef Hospitality was launched in 2006 and, in addition to Rare Steakhouse On the Square in Madison, operates Buck & Badger Northwoods Lodge on State Street in Madison; Capital Tap Hause on State Street; the Ivory Room Piano Bar on State Street; and Freiberg Gastro Pub on Monroe Street in Madison.
“We’re excited to be entering a new market and we believe 833 East is an outstanding location for our first Milwaukee restaurant,” said Jack Sosnowski, president and CEO of Noble Chef Hospitality. “Downtown Milwaukee is experiencing a renaissance in new development and the 833 East location in particular offers a wonderful location near the city’s evolving lakefront. Rare will offer a high-class dining experience for any occasion.”
The 17-story, 833 East building is expected to be completed by February, 2016. Rare is expected to open in early 2016 and will feature seasonal outdoor seating.
“833 is attracting a lot of attention from businesses interested in locating to Milwaukee’s newest office building in an area of downtown that’s undergoing incredible changes,” said Lyle Landowski, a partner with Colliers International Wisconsin and a leasing agent on the project. “Rare Steakhouse will provide a high-quality dining destination for business meetings or for those headed to entertainment venues along the lakefront.”
