Greendale, WI – The Bartolotta Restaurants is announcing the reopening date for Joey Gerard’s – A Bartolotta Supper Club in the historic village of Greendale, which will reopen Thursday, December 17. The return of this popular Bartolotta restaurant comes as the family-owned company continues to reopen locations with an enhanced emphasis on health and hygiene protocols for guests and employees. The restaurant will also launch with a curbside menu, exclusively through Tock, which will reflect a wide range of acclaimed offerings.
Located in the charming village of historic Greendale, Joey Gerard’s embraces an upscale casual dining experience while combining classic supper club menu options –charcoal-fired steaks in Josper ovens, grilled cold-water lobster tails, cedar-plank salmon, and a modern spin on supper-club classics such as Braised Short Rib Beef Stroganoff; and of course, the classic schaum torte – baked meringue and fresh strawberries.
Joey Gerard’s – A Bartolotta Supper Club will reopen on Thursday, December 17, with new hours of operation – Tuesday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. – and a dining menu conceived by Executive Chef David Wolfe. The restaurant will also open the last two Mondays of December (December 21 and 28) as part of its extended holiday hours.
Chef Wolfe joined The Bartolotta Restaurants in 2019 following a successful three-year tenure with Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants. In June 2016, he opened the company’s Journeyman Hotel as Executive Sous Chef, overseeing all aspects of Tre Rivali Restaurant and The Outsider, a rooftop dining experience, under the direction of famed Chef Heather Terhune. He also served under Michelin-starred Chef Suzy Crofton, along with Chef Jason Gorman and Bradford Shovlin at Milwaukee’s Iron Horse Hotel, beginning as Sous Chef before ascending to Chef de Cuisine and later Executive Sous Chef.
