Our Space & Location
An absolute hidden gem of Milwaukee. You have to experience the attention to detail, the sheer love and devotion that went into every inch of this magnificent establishment. Such a joy!

The Space & History
In 2013, Chef David Magnasco purchased an empty and lofty 10,000 square foot warehouse. The space was designed and renovated into The Chef’s Table, an elegant, yet intimate setting that gives guests the feeling that they are stepping into the Chef’s personal home. The dining room, parlor and open kitchen offer sophisticated charm that is enhanced by the Chef’s custom design and décor.
Also built by Chef David, The Grand Table was constructed using reclaimed wood from the 100-year old building’s remodel, and is lit by a chandelier fashioned out of sterling silver utensils. Leaded stained glass windows and wine bottle lighting fixtures embellish this full-service bar. These handcrafted pieces by Chef David are paired with furnishings and ornamental copper kitchenware collected from his antiquing explorations and time spent abroad.
We've built out three main areas of the building since 2014, The Chef's Table (main space), The Courtyard, and The Lower Level, and next we're moving to the roof with a Greenhouse!

We are located in the industrial Walker's Point neighborhood of Milwaukee, also known as the Fifth Ward, just across the river from Downtown. It's Milwaukee's most up and coming neighborhood, with restaurants, jazz clubs, ice cream shops, and boutiques moving into old warehouses and storefronts, many still painted with old logos and store names.
Next door we have Anodyne Coffee Roasters, across the street is Bradley Tech High School, and diagonal from us are the amazing artists and metal smiths Scathain. With most of these places being open during the day, we are provided a quiet and peaceful neighborhood at night (with plenty of street parking).
