Potawatomi Opening Update to Italian Restaurant
Potawatomi Hotel & Casino will open its newest restaurant, Bella Italiana, on December 13.
Located in the space Wild Earth Cucina Italiana currently sits, Bella Italiana will offer a more traditional Italian menu that will feature classic dishes. It will be open Sunday and Tuesday through Thursday from 4:00 – 10:00 PM, and Friday and Saturday from 4:00 PM - 10: 30 PM.
“We are creating a more approachable concept to better serve our guests,” said Don Sally, Food & Beverage Director. “Bella Italiana will feature a broader and traditional menu that will appeal to our guests’ tastes, and that’s what’s most important to us.”
Maggie Haller-Kuester has been named chef at Bella Italiana. Haller-Kuester has been with Potawatomi Hotel & Casino since May 2012, and was previously the sous chef of the Solstice Lounge. Prior to her arrival, she opened seven restaurants in Milwaukee including Wild Earth Cucina Italiana. Haller-Kuester earned her culinary training education at Waukesha County Technical College.
