In late 2014, The Uncanny Soup Company—which had a location in Milwaukee’s historic Gas Light Building before leaving to turn its focus to locations in Cudahy and Kenosha, along with a slight commercial presence in area grocery stores—sunk its ladle into Milwaukee’s downtown by opening a new location at 622 N. Water Street. Following just one disappointing year in its new downtown digs, the longstanding soup and sandwich purveyor that had regional recognition and a cookbook worth of recipes to its credit announced it was closing the restaurant in November 2015 “to pursue other interests.”
Today, more than three years since Uncanny Soup Company’s last remaining site called it a day, owners publicly expressed interest in reopening the business and put out an open call to help them find a new home. Uncanny posted their intentions to look for a new location on Facebook Monday morning. Owners also asked for people to send them ideas for locations or information on open properties.
If you’ve missed Uncanny Soup Company, you might get to taste forgotten recipes again very soon. Better yet, you might be able to have a say in where the restaurant’s new home will be. Stay tuned for updates as more information becomes available.
