Restuarants in Milwaukee

will be in Milwaukee for a couple of days in June. Looking for restaurant ideas, not too expensive as one of the women in our group is on a tight budget but we don't want drive in food either. Love Italian and sea food. Saw that Balistere's got a good review but really want something in downtown area (wehre we willb e staying) or along the lake

Thanks all.....

There are a couple of inexpensive but interesting options you might want to check out in the downtown area.
My first recommendation is the Milwaukee Public Market. It is an fun place to visit with a lot of wonderful vendors and some great food.
While you are there you may want to check out the rest of the Historic Third Ward. There are lots of charming little restaurants that post their menus outside. We have enjoyed every restaurant we've tried. The area is also loaded with interesting shops, galleries and theater options. I think it is a must for any visit to Milwaukee.
Another option is a coffee shop just across from Lake Michigan just to the north of the downtown area. It looks like they recently changed their name from Alterra Coffee to Collectivo Coffee (which might be important piece of info if asking directions). It is an interesting building with a great location next to the lake and they offer soup, sandwiches and baked goods.
Have a great time in Milwaukee.
