On its face, Sandy D’Amato’s restaurant looks like the local installment of the typical New American restaurant that you can find all over the country. But what makes it stand out from all of the others is a menu where, "many of the dishes are influenced by Milwaukee's local ethnic groups." Executive chef Justin Aprahamiam’s menu features dishes like a cheese bourek with a pickled watermenlon salad, duck breast glazed with lekvar (prune butter) and roasted apricots; and veal breast cooked for 17 hours and topped with a paprika and caraway seed crust and served with a poppy seed slaw. It's uniformly recommended by reviewers whose comments include; "a marriage of Midwestern pride and culinary genius" and "While L'Etoile might get the press, Sanford is the best restaurant in Wisconsin."
