MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee’s East Town will soon have a brand new dining destination.

The Astor Café & Pub (which some may recall as The Nantucket Shores in the 1970s), located within the Historic Astor Hotel, will open November 1st with a new look, new menus, and newly expanded hours serving seven days a week.

Specials will be offered every day in November, and guests may enter to win prize drawings throughout the month.  In honor of Veteran’s Day, on November 11 veterans and members of the armed services can eat in The Café for free, and their table guests will receive a free dessert.

Visitors to The Astor Café & Pub will find great food, exceptional service and the unique ambiance of a truly historic setting.   Dining hours have been extended with The Astor Café & Pub serving breakfast and lunch daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Fresh new menus feature contemporary cuisine including many signature dishes, as well as changing seasonal menus.

The Astor Café & Pub’s vintage bar offers craft beers, specialty wine and signature drinks and is open daily from 7 a.m. to midnight.  As a special welcome offer, guests will receive two free mimosas with each meal through 2015.

The Astor Café & Pub welcomes groups of up to 50 in the Rotunda Room banquet facility that is available for evening and weekend special events outside of the restaurant’s dining hours.

“We also look forward to hosting group gatherings such as monthly meetings for local clubs and organizations, beer and wine tastings, private parties, and corporate events,” said David Bowen, General Manager of Banquets and Special Events.

The Historic Astor Hotel and its restaurants have been a prestigious “go-to” destination for famous visitors to the city and local Milwaukeeans alike — all lured by its dining excellence, outstanding service, old-world charm, and idyllic location near Lake Michigan in the Yankee Hill section of Milwaukee’s Historic East Town district.
