The Madison-based pizza company has pegged Silver Spring Drive for its foray into the Milwaukee market.
After seven years of building The Roman Candle Pizzeria in Madison, Brewer Stouffer chose to make his foray into the Milwaukee pizza market via Whitefish Bay. First launched in Madison in 2005, The Roman Candle expanded to Middleton in 2007 and Fitchburg in 2010. By September, the company hopes to be serving East-Coast style pizza in a 3,000-square-foot vacancy in the east end of the former Honquest Furniture building at 133 E. Silver Spring Drive. Of all the neighborhoods in and around Milwaukee, Stouffer said he was attracted to Whitefish Bay because he saw a need for a neighborhood pizza place. "Whitefish Bay is a nice demographic mix, because it is family-oriented and there is an emphasis on neighborhoods, an emphasis on walking and …

Whitefish Bay's newest personal fitness studio opened this week, offering personal training, TRX, yoga, and other exercises tailored to an individual's fitness goals.
Those looking to get in shape for the summer months have a new local fitness option in Orange Shoe Personal Fitness at 121 E. Silver Spring Drive. Orange Shoe was started in 2004 by Joshua Martin, and now the company boasts seven locations: three in the Madison area; one a piece in Brookfield, Chicago and Houston; and now, the Whitefish Bay location. The Whitefish Bay studio is owned by Tina Martin – no relation to Joshua. She says she chose to open in the former Honquest Furniture building because of its size, visibility and close proximity to her existing personal training clients.

The Fazzari family hopes to open its third Milwaukee area pizza restaurant in Shorewood, offering takeout and delivery.
In about seven to 10 days, owner Carmelo Fazzari said he will be ready to open Al Calderone Club in Shorewood. The pizza restaurant opening at 4475 N. Oakland Ave. will primarily fill takeout orders, but will also offer delivery. There will be a handful of barstools in the front of the restaurant for those interested in just ordering a slice. Fazzari plans to offer whole wheat and gluten-free options. The restaurant is named for Fazzari's dad, who passed away in September. He opened his first location under the same name in the 1970s near Bartlett Avenue and Bradford Avenue. “I just look forward to coming back to the eastside and Shorewood area where we started in the 70’s,” Fazzari said in October, when he announced plans to open in …

Seon Joo So used the craft of Korean origami to simulate her children's minds as they played, and hopes to share the art of transforming a humble square of scrap paper into a masterpiece with her new Shorewood studio So Cool Craft.
After having two children, Seon Joo So stopped studying for a career in the food industry and changed her college major to early childhood education. Spending time with her children brought her the most joy and she wanted to translate that into a living. When she first discovered Jong-Ie Jopgi, Korean origami, it was a way to stimulate her children's minds while playing. Born in South Korea, So moved to the US in 2006, and enrolled her children to Shorewood schools, but as her children neared adulthood in her new home, she sought out another way to share her love of transforming a humble square of scrap paper into a masterpiece. In December, she opened So Cool Craft at 4160 N. Oakland Ave., next to Benji's Deli and Great Clips. The shop…

Shorewood has spent a lot of money for its growth on Oakland Avenue, while Whitefish Bay chooses a more conservative approach that only recently seems to be paying off. Which one community has it right?
While there are certainly cultural and geographical differences between the neighboring villages of Shorewood and Whitefish Bay, the two communities’ philosophical difference in business development is just as stark. Shorewood has been very aggressive in spending money to recruit new businesses, while Whitefish Bay has decided to be more conservative with its expenses and more modest in its growth. But, Shorewood has added nearly 30 new businesses while losing just two over two years. Over that time span, Whitefish Bay has seen a lot of turnover with nine businesses leaving and another 14 opening their doors. John Stuhlmacher, chairman of the Whitefish Bay Business Improvement District, said in an article on Patch, "you have to let the …

More than three years after it went up in flames, the popular East Side restaurant will once again serve up slices come June.
More than three years after a four-alarm fire destroyed the East North Avenue mainstay, Pizza Man will make its much-anticipated return to Milwaukee's east side this summer. A few blocks south of the Shorewood border, Mike Amidzich hopes to open the restaurant in June at the corner of North Downer Avenue and East Belleview Place, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Carol Deptolla writes. Pizza Man will fill the first and second floors of the building and include a second-story patio for outdoor dining. The owner tells Deptolla he is still working out the menu, which will include some old customer favorites and some vegetarian options, but the restaurant will continue to offer his notable, award-winning wine menu.
