Est. 2014

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, lounge and open kitchen offer sophisticated charm that is enhanced by custom design and décor...and that's just the first floor.

Also built by Chef David, The Grand Table was constructed using reclaimed wood from the 100-year old building remodel, and is lit by a chandelier fashioned out of sterling silver utensils.  Leaded stained glass windows and wine bottle lighting fixtures embellish the full-service bar.  Chef David's handcrafted pieces are paired with unique furnishings, eclectic decorations, and ornamental copper kitchenware collected from his antiquing explorations both here and abroad.

500 S 3rd St, Milwaukee, WI 53204

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 ghost 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 parking).

Within the building, you'll find the main space on the first floor, the courtyard in the back, and the lower level in the basement.

The Main Space

The First Floor features a warm, open concept – an inviting, convivial dining environment comprised of The Grand Table, Main Bar, Lounge, Dining Room, and Kitchen, with a full view of our Culinary Brigade at work.

Seated Dinner ~ up to 68

Reception Style ~ up to 100-150


The Courtyard

A curated green space, complete with a water fountain, fire pit, and garden, The Courtyard can be added to the rental of the Main Space. Available day or night, it’s wonderful for ceremonies, live music, cigars, bocce ball, or bonfires after dinner! The tent, outdoor furniture, and bar set up are not included, but can be arranged.

During Summer Months ~ Adds Up To 50 More Guests for Reception-Style Events


The Lower Level

This area began as one large open space that has been built out over the years to create curated concept areas, and there’s still room for more. Separate, secret entrances lead to The Parlor or Speakeasy – available to rent individually or in addition to the Main Space – enhance your event with an element of surprise.

 Adding on the entire Lower Level can increase your total guest count by over 50.

The Parlor

Consisting of The Under the Table Apothecary and an area we playfully call “The Streets," this Old Milwaukee atmosphere is great for hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, billiards, and other games. The Apothecary features a curious array of tonics, elixirs, and colorful design. 
Seated Dinner ~ up to 7

Reception Style ~ up to 30

The Speakeasy

After first passing through our "Mail Room," you’ll be sent back in time to our Speakeasy. From the antique French bar to the copper penny floor, you’ll be charmed by the reinvented Prohibition-era cocktails, quaint atmosphere, and antique decor. Reception style menus, seated dinners, and business meetings work well in this area. 
Seated Dinner ~ up to 16
Reception Style ~ up to 20


The Wine Cellar

The smallest and most intimate room in the building, the Cellar is perfect for date nights, engagements, anniversaries, and private wine tastings with our sommelier!

Seated Dinner ~ 2-3

Private Wine Tasting ~ 2-4
