A new restaurant with Wisconsin roots will open March 7 in the Power & Light District

Mark your calendars: A new restaurant is opening March 7 in the Power & Light District.

Leinenkugel’s, at 1323 Walnut Street, will offer dishes inspired by the Leinenkugel family’s Wisconsin heritage.

Think farm-to-table burgers, sandwiches and tacos with an added bonus: a beer garden out back.

Dishes include Lobster Street Tacos, a BBQ Brisket Burger and Mini Bratwurst Sliders.

The beer garden will feature a two-sided fireplace and soft seating for outdoor diners (and drinkers).

Speaking of drinkers, Leinenkugel’s will offer a beer-focused drink menu with beer cocktails such as Smoke and a Beer, made with Mezcal , fresh lime juice, celery bitters, Cholula, Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat.

Beer features include a “Creamy Dark Ice Cream Float,” made with Leinenkugel’s Creamy Dark and two scoops of coffee-flavored ice cream or the Blood Orange Beermosa, which consists of Prosecco Italian sparkling white wine, blood orange juice and Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat beer.

Power & Light’s new addition will be open for lunch and dinner with a happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. A late-night happy hour will take place from 10 p.m. until close each night.
