Berkeley's is one .. and done.
Whitefish Bay residents Marija and Ryan Whitman closed Berkeley's today, after 13 months struggling with road construction, a bad economy, and mixed reviews. While beloved by a base of villagers, Berkeley's as it was just didn't have the customer counts to stay afloat.
It will re-open this FRIDAY!
They are dramatically changing the interior space, with new colors, new lights, a new floor, new drop-ceiling (to cut the noise), a new menu, lower price point, and a brand new name.
The new motif? Mexican! ¡Ay, caramba!
They are still tossing around a few names for the new cantina. If you have a suggestion .. pass it on, I'll make sure it gets to them. Whitefish Bay-ritos? (hat tip: JK)
So .. make sure you come to Whitefish Bay's Holiday Stroll this Friday. The parade is at 6pm .. by 6:30, swing by Berkeley's v2.0 to warm up with something covered in hot sauce.
