Four Restaurants in Downtown Wauwatosa Hosting Collaborative Dinner

Four restaurants in downtown Wauwatosa announced a collaborative dinner event to celebrate the reopening of the Village.

Called “Tour de Tosa,” the event features dishes and drinks from around Europe, served up in a “progressive dinner” format, where guests move from restaurant to restaurant for unique dishes and a wine or beer pairing.

“The Village has been transformed into something right out of Europe,” said Dan Herwig, director of brand and marketing at Lowlands Group. “That’s really what started us thinking about this. We have a French, German, Italian and Lowlands European restaurant all within a few footsteps of one another. We wondered if we could collaborate on a new and unique dining experience for our guests, and are thrilled that we have that with Tour de Tosa.”

Ristorante Bartolotta, Le Rêve Patisserie & Café, Café Hollander and Café Bavaria will be collaborating.

This is a first for the four restaurants.

Guests must buy a $80 ticket online which they’ll be able to redeem at the event for a “Tasting Passport.”

The event will take place January 26 from 6 to 9 PM.

The passport allows them to go to each of the four restaurants to sample two dishes that exemplify the regions that their restaurants represent, plus either a wine or beer pairing depending on the location.

The City of Wauwatosa recently completed the first phase of a massive streetscaping overhaul of its downtown Village district and now has a European look and feel. The entire Village–including the road surfaces–uses decorative pavers which make the Village feel more like a courtyard, and much more walkable overall.

Tickets are $80 per guest and are limited to 150 people for the event. As a result, the restaurants encourage those interested to buy soon to reserve a spot as they expect the event to sell out quickly. Full event details and tickets can be found at
