Nostalgia will reign at Joey Gerard's - A Bartolotta Supper Club


In May, we brought you the news of two new classic supper club venues being opened by the Bartolotta restaurant group – one in Greendale at 5601 Broad St., formerly Harmony Inn the Village, and another in the Riversite space, 11120 N. Cedarburg Rd., in Mequon.

A recent announcement revealed that both venues will adopt the name Joey Gerard's, a moniker fashioned after the name Joe Bartolotta's mother would call him, particularly when he was misbehaving.

"My family inspires me in my work everyday; especially decisions regarding new concepts," said Joe Bartolotta, president and co-owner of The Bartolotta Restaurants. "I wanted to incorporate that nostalgic memory in the naming of our supper clubs."

The nostalgia will not only be apparent in the name, but also the offerings of the restaurant, which will include classic supper club fare, a large bar including a selection of tap beer, signature cocktails, value-oriented wine offerings and, of course, ice cream drinks.

Chef teams at both locations will be led by Corporate Chef Adam Siegel with The Rumpus Room's Andrew Ruiz taking on the role of executive chef at the Mequon location and Joe Schrieter, executive sous chef at Harbor House, being promoted to executive chef of the Greendale supper club.

Both restaurants are expected to open before the end of the year.

Joey Gerard's will begin hiring this summer; more information will be available at the Bartolotta web site or by emailing hr@bartolottas.com.
