Zagat Ratings Food Milwaukee

Does anyone know the top 10 Milwaukee restaurants according to Zagat? I used to be a Zagat member but my subscription is expired and I'm hesitant to pay $25.00 for another years membership... (maybe I'm cheap)

I'm not a subscriber, but a voter. Haven't gotten my new book yet. Considering Zagat takes into account many chain restaurants, I don't exactly trust them. The top hits for Mke according to Zagat are:

Sanford - Mke's only five star restaurant

Bacchus - a relatively new one by the Bartollota group

Dream Dance - in the casino. This consecutivey is voted one of the best by local guide as welll.

Eddie Martini's - a long time steak restaurant, around before they become popular again. Also a local guide's favorite

Jackson Grill - small, out of the way, relatively unknown place. Steaks are phenomenal.

Osteria del Mondo - Italian. A few local critics' favorite.

Eagan's - surprised to see this one there, but they have longetivity in MIlwaukee and are near the theater district

Three Brothers - the old fashioned Serbian place in Bayview. A James Beard award winner.

Karl Ratzsch's - old fashioned German food.

Lake Park Bistro - another Bartolotta's restaurant, local favorite, great view of the lake, great food.

Others that come up in local "best of" guides are the new Yanni, Yaffa, Milwakee Chophouse, Moceans, Riversite and River Lane Inn, Pacific Rim.....

Milwaukee Magazine also just put out their "best of 2006" list according to their food critic.

Planked whitefish with mash potatoes at Karl Raasch's is special. Heathy (well, the fish at least) and delicious.
