BROOKFIELD, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A new restaurant has been announced at The Corners of Brookfield. Lake Country Social will be a 15,000 square foot, three-story American restaurant with a bar, garden rooftop and lounge.
Lake Country Social will be inspired by Wisconsin’s rich old-world heritage, which is steeped in native and European tradition, combined with its new-world modern sensibility guided by health, wholesomeness, empowerment, and style.
The menu will consist of refined yet comforting supper club classics - fried walleye and perch, burgers, prime steaks, chops and fresh seafood - along with thoughtfully composed and plated house specialties. “While the assortment is classic Wisconsin, each dish will be refined through technique and sourcing,” says Head of Culinary Development for RNO, Chef Tim Dahl.
The tri-level space features an open-air garden rooftop with a large bar, lounge area with fire pits and dining for 100+ guests. “The rooftop will be in perpetual celebration mode,” says Maddy Van Elzen, RNO’s Director of Hospitality. “We plan on throwing Brookfield‘s largest fish fry each Friday on our rooftop in the summer. The space will be great for weekend brunches and available for rent as a private party space.”
The main dining room at Lake Country Social features an open kitchen in a casual airy setting that evokes the feel of lakeside dining. Its bar is a special feature with 45-seats and large floor to ceiling windows that open fully to the patio.
The lower level of Lake Country changes from an open and airy environment to a more intimate, lounge-like, lux supper club atmosphere. Here, Lake Country Social offers more formal dining, a dedicated private party space with state-of-the-art audio and video capabilities, and a separate wine, charcuterie and cheese bar named Elsie that features a 22-ft high copper, wood and glass back bar. This bar will also house one of the region's largest collection of American bourbons and gins.
