Last week, Milwaukee’s first Golden Corral opened on Layton Avenue. Though that franchise’s arrival on the airport-adjacent causeway—which is also home to some actually good restaurants like Kim Thai, Nite Owl, LaLa’s, and Pho Hai Tuyet—came with its fair share of excitement, we’re far more interested in another restaurant that’s about to open a few blocks away from that buffet. After months of renovations and preparations, Pita Palace will officially open for business on Monday, July 23.
The Mediterranean restaurant revamped the property at 789 W. Layton Ave., which has experienced a great deal of turnover of late. Prior to Pita Palace moving in, the building was briefly home to a Western-themed bar and grill called Wild Bill’s Sports Saloon. The most exciting aspect of Pita Palace is the restaurant’s ownership affiliation with Al-Yousef, an excellent Middle Eastern market and restaurant that’s buried deep in Oak Creek. Information about Pita Palace’s menu isn’t available online, but if it’s anything like Al-Yousef, Milwaukee is in for a treat.
