Kicking off 2020 with a twist, Mason Street Grill, a part of the Marcus® Restaurant Group, announced the launch of new lunch, dinner and cocktail menus. The restaurant also named its new general manager, Brady Pankow, who has been overseeing all daily operations at the neighborhood grill in downtown Milwaukee since 2019.

The new lunch, dinner and cocktail menus feature many of the restaurant’s staple favorites, while adding dishes with flavors and techniques slightly different than the typical American Grill. Some of the new dishes include braised short rib, dumplings and grilled octopus. Mason Street Grill also added a new specialty cocktail – Mason Street Moonshine, which melds together honey, an assortment of hand-picked spices, fresh apple and a neutral spirit.

“I wanted these new menus to reflect my passion for mixing unconventional and simple flavors, while continuing to showcase the amazing quality that Mason Street Grill offers. By marrying comfort food with fine dining, the new dishes provide a unique twist that is different from the classic meals at Mason Street Grill, but will certainly leave a lasting impression,” said Heskeith Flavien, executive chef at the restaurant.

Pankow, the new general manager at Mason Street Grill, is overseeing the roll out of the new menus with Flavien. Pankow, who has 30 plus years of experience in the restaurant industry, joined Mason Street Grill from Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Northbrook, Ill., where he served as the general manager since 2016. Prior to that position, he was general manager at Townhouse Detroit, an American grill located in Detroit. His career has also included roles as general manager for several different restaurants across the country, including Cameron’s Steakhouse in Birmingham, Mich., and opening five restaurants for the Cameron Mitchell Restaurant Group in Arizona, Michigan and Ohio.

“Throughout my career working in restaurants, I have always strived to provide engaged and thoughtful leadership in order to ensure a successful environment for my staff and a high-quality dining experience for our guests. I am thrilled to be at Mason Street Grill and working with the team here to uphold its legacy of being a staple for excellent service and high-quality food in Milwaukee,” Pankow said.
