Blue’s Celebrates Mexico in September

MEXICO

As we’ve done in the past, Blue’s Egg is celebrating the culinary heritage of Mexico through the month of Septiembre!

Chefs Americo, Victor, Scott, and Joe are exploring the region cuisines and ingredients. We’ve already seen creations such as: Enchiladas Con Mole Guajillo, Benedicto De Lengua De Res, Huaraches de Tinga, Al Pastor Benny, Tres Leches French Toast, Chicharrones En Salsa Verde, and Cochinita Pibil. We done versions of our favorite Browns: Escabeche Browns, Fiesta Browns, and Elote Browns.

Our goal is to serve the best brunch, and we hope you’ll enjoy some of the best Mexican food in Milwaukee this month at Blue’s!

Black Shoe Texas BBQ for Harvey Relief

We are hosting a buffet next week to benefit Hurricane Harvey relief and recovery at Blue’s Egg. We are able to do this through the generosity of our vendors, who have committed to donate product, and some Black Shoe Hospitality staff members, who will donate their time to staff the event.

July is French Month at Blue’s Egg

Because Paris is probably hot and crowded right now, and because everybody takes August off, and because we can’t afford to fly you all to a château in the South of France… we’re going to do this!

We’ve had a lot of Frenchie fun in previous years, and we’re planning to bring out the best dishes from our exploration of this rich and varied cuisine.

Stop by any day this month to try some French specials — except Tuesday, July 4, that’s America’s day. Blue’s Egg will be closed on the Fourth of July. Our other restaurants, Maxie’s and Story Hill BKC, also are closed for the holiday, but Maxie’s will be at Tosa Tonight for the City of Wauwatosa’s Civic Celebration, a free concert by ABBA salute Dancing Queen and FIREWORKS.

Our friends from Maxie’s will also be serving at Milwaukee’s celebration of France, Bastille Days, in Cathedral Square park, July 13-16. Let’s have some fun as we celebrate the country that invented restaurants!

It’s That Time of Year Again — Patio Season!

The sun’s out and the patio’s popping! Through summer, we’ll serve brunch on the patio Monday through Friday, weather permitting.

On Saturday and Sunday, it’s a patio bar and lounging area with coffee, mimosas and one of Milwaukee’s Best Bloody Marys, weather permitting.

Blue’s was named one of “8 Great Milwaukee Brunch Spots for Long, Languid Weekend Mornings,” — what could be more summery than drinks on the patio?

September is Mexico Month

MEXICO

Our August celebration of France was so fantastically delicious, we’re doing it again in September. This time, we’re going to Mexico!

Starting Saturday, Sept. 3, we’ll feature a few specials every day this month showcasing the amazing culinary traditions of Mexico. Chefs Joe, Erick, Americo, and Victor will bring out a few familiar favorites (maybe chilaquiles, albondigas, or cochinita pibil!), but also explore unique regional cuisines.

Our goal is to serve the best brunch, and we hope you’ll enjoy some of the best Mexican food in Milwaukee this month at Blue’s!

OnMilwaukee.com: “Milwaukee’s most Instagram-able foods”

We were very excited to see Blue’s Egg named along with some of Wisconsin’s most iconic foods in this OnMilwaukee.com story.

“Brunch at Blue’s Egg looks as satisfyingly scrumptious as it tastes,” according to the post. “Having been voted Milwaukee’s best breakfast four times over, there’s no way you can go wrong with anything on the menu at Blue’s Egg, especially when it comes to the mouth-watering appearance of the dishes.”

We’re happy to hear our hard work has people thinking of us with the likes of Kopp’s Custard, State Fair cream puffs, cheese curds, Miller Park brats, and New Glarus beer. We’re humbled — and getting hungry!

And, btw, we’re @bluesegg on Instagram! We want to see your brunch pics – tag ’em up!

“It’s my birthday, too, Yeah!” Blue’s Turns 6

It’s been SIX WHOLE YEARS since we first opened here for breakfast in 2010. We’re celebrating on Tuesday, July 12, with $6 Bloody Marys. Plus, it’s still CBGB Tuesday, so you know you can get a Canned Beer ($2) and a Great Burger.

We’re digging out a few deep cuts from our original breakfast and lunch menu, like the Old English Benedict. We might even bring back some stratas and ducks livers! Monkey Bread and To-Go Coffee will be just $1 for the party.
