Soul Food Restaurant for Mitchell Street
Milwaukee Unified Soul will serve shrimp, salmon nuggets, chicken sandwiches and more
A new soul food restaurant is planned for Milwaukee’s South Side.
The restaurant lists hamburgers, chicken tenders, salmon, shrimp and smashed potatoes as items on its proposed menu. Specialty items like salmon nuggets and buffalo chicken sandwiches would be served as well. Sides would include French fries, onion rings, coleslaw and vegetable egg rolls.
Proposed hours are noon to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, noon to 8 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, noon to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday. The restaurant will be closed on Mondays, according to a license application.
A food license application is pending before the Milwaukee Common Council.
Neither applicant responded to Urban Milwaukee’s phone calls asking for comment.
The new business would occupy one of four commercial stalls in the two-story, 7,220-square-foot building that also fronts S. 9th St. A Subway sandwich shop, 839 W. Historic Mitchell St., is also located in the building.
Constructed in 1895 and substantially remodeled in 1981 according to state records, the building has been host to a number of different bars and restaurants.
Before Megalokos, the future soul food space was home to the short-lived Red & White. An occupancy permit was issued in November 2019.
The property is owned by VP Holdings I, LLC according to city records. Seven apartments are located upstairs according to assessment records.
