Milwaukee... looks gorgeous (!) on Top Chef

Who knew?

Partner and I are addicted to this show. This season it's set in Wisconsin. Never been there, but I always assumed that Milwaukee would have a decrepit rust belt vibe. Instead, it has beautiful, modern buildings and features mixed in with beautifully restored or well-maintained old buildings.

Anyone on here been there or lives there?

BTW, the host of the show is loveable and seems to lean on the dykey side. Manny, the cute bear cub chef contestant, is sadly engaged to marry a woman.

Oh, I love Milwaukee! I live in Chicago so not far. It’s a beautiful small city right on the lake.

by Anonymousreply 1June 6, 2024 9:54 PM

I lived there for several years for school 20 years ago. I went back for a visit in 2018. I had forgotten how beautiful it is. It's a fun town with great restaurants, theater, museums, young people. They now the Hiawatha Amtrak service with frequent and fairly fast service to Chicago's Union Station. Also, the countryside is only about a 20 minute drive and the city has beautiful lakefront parks.

I I lived in Chicago years ago but never went to Milwaukee while I lived there. I did visit Milwaukee last year though while I was following somebody on tour. I absolutely loved it. It was quite a charming town and I'd flown into Chicago so I took Amtrak and it was a really lovely ride to the city.

Although the southeastern corner of Wisconsin is considered part of the rust belt, you wouldn't know by visiting, as you've seen. It doesn't have any of the desolate vibe that you'll find to the east along the Great Lakes.

I went to college in upstate New York, and many of the small towns there are depressing, poverty-stricken hellholes in comparison.

Wisconsin is truly beautiful. I grew up there so I took for granted how lovely it is until I traveled and lived in other places. The people are kind too. But when Wisconsin shits the bed, it does so in spectacular fashion. McCarthy, Dahmer, Scott Walker (we had some of the best public schools in the nation until he came along) Gein etc. But it's a wonderful and picturesque state and the locals don't take kindly to decrepitude. They'll paint a mural on shitty building and fix the roof before they let it fall apart. Usually

I just moved out of Milwaukee for Los Angeles a few years ago. Milwaukee was the worst place I've ever lived: the people are surprisingly insular, there's a sense that if you're not a native, there's something wrong with you; the Wisconsin accent is horrendous, and above all, the weather is about the worst in the nation: horrible long cold winters and brief and ugly little summer. Barely any spring or fall.

The city suffers from being too close to Chicago, and not being either the capital of the state or the home of the state school. All it really offers is beer, cheese, and the Packers. And if that doesn't satisfy you, there's no reason to stay there.

R7 - I will agree that it suffers from being so close to Chicago and not being the state capital or to have the state University. Take away the latter 2 from Madison and it would be NOTHING.

But I disagree about there being nothing there. I lived there for a few years when I was younger. There's a lot to do and it's friendly and relatively inexpensive. The weather is - well, it's fucking Wisconsin - but, that being said, it IS better than the majority of the state. It's actually the warmer part of the state.

It was always shocking to me how few people in Milwaukee had ever been to Chicago - and it's 90 miles away.

For the rust belt - it has a lot going for it, you just need to know where to go. Not a huge city though. It's way better than Detroit, Pittsburgh or Cleveland.

I was beaten up by two black guys as I left a gay bar in downtown when I lived there. I fought them off somehow. I think they were surprised I put up a fight and backed off. They didn't try to rob me, maybe they decided not to, or it was a gay bashing (I was almost two blocks away from the bar so probably not) or they just wanted to beat up a White guy. Who knows.

Yes, it is a very segregated city, blacks mainly live west of the Milwaukee River, everyone else, east of the river. Because of Marquette, UWM, Milwaukee School of Engineering, etc. it is a young town. There are people of many different ethnicities (including a large Mexican population) and students from around the world.

Milwaukee is segregated - but it ranks #5 on the most segregated large cities in the US. New York City is #9.

The most integrated cities in America include the such diverse populations of Colorado Springs, CO and Anchorage, AK.

So take it with a grain of salt. The high crime rate is also relative - it happens in specific areas as most crime does.

That it is, and it can also be one of the most racist places in the country.

Its downtown and nearby areas have been beautifully rejuvenated and the architecture is amazing. The historic Third Ward has undergone a lot of welcome change.

But a lot of the rest of the city is still in disrepair.

The parallel for me is Pittsburgh - amazing downtown and lots of growth OR revitalization in certain areas (the Strip, North Shore, Lawrenceville) but the rest of the city is still a slowly decaying pile of rust and dust.

R18, yes, you can swim in the lake but, like the poster said, it is cold. If you grew up swimming in the Atlantic, as I did, you probably won't like it. It feels and smells completely different, which of course, it obviously should. I just could never get used to it. It often has waves, but they are erratic. You don't get the same rhythm of motion like the ocean.

That said, it is a gorgeous lake with many moods and colors. I had a view of it from my porch for awhile and I never got bored looking at it. The moon and sun rises over it were always sublime. In winter, when it is really cold, there is often a wall of spiraling mist towering offshore, while the city is sunny. It was one of the most incredible things I'd ever seen coming from New York City.

Looks like a short trip to Chicago then a train trip to Milwaukee may be in our future. Have never been to The Midwest. Partner (from Boston) and I (from SF) are "Coastal Elites" lol. Have flown over those cities so many times. Flying from SF, after the Sierra Nevada, you see nothing but empty flatland or farmland until Milwaukee or Chicago, which I can identify, as both are on giant bodies of water. Have always wondered what's down there. Would restrict the trip to touristy/downtown areas. The point for us would be to visit, not move there, despite the affordability for us Eldergays.

We are somewhat promiscuous vegetarians. Am picturing Bratwurst with sauerkraut and beer in Milwaukee and a fancy steak in Chicago, and whatever fish from the lake is best.

The accent makes me giggle. I've seen "Fargo" 3 or 4 times. Good to know it's "a very liberal blue city with a vibrant LGTB community," as r21 said. BTW, r21, have you ever driven in Boston? They're all hyper-aggressive. And don't get me started about off-meds SF Bay Area drivers.

When I lived there I met almost no one who'd been to Europe and only a few who'd been to NYC. Milwaukee people consider a trip to Chicago as their great traveling adventure. Most people seem to never leave the state (or want to), and are amazed when you suggest that there are places that surpass Milwaukee in terms of, well, everything.

Never met a more provincial crowd before in my life. I couldn't wait to get out, and now that I am, I would never consider returning.

The Wisconsin accent is real, but it's not widespread throughout the state. I grew up in the rural area just north of Madison (where the DL-famous missing boy vanished), and the people there don't have the accent, except faintly on certain words from some people. And yes, Wisconsin is one of those words.

It's also not the Fargo accent. The only place you might hear that in state is far north, near Minnesota. For anyone interested in what the Wisconsin accent sounds like, Charlie Berens, who was a guest judge on the second episode of Top Chef Wisconsin, mocks it very effectively in his comedy videos.
