Midwest Living Review

Melanie Radzicki McManus
With its historically chic atmosphere, delicious food and ground-level bar, this is a great pick for a special night out.

The Black and Tan Grille offers a couple of dining options in the historic Bellin building. With music on weekends, the main-level wine and martini bar provides the chance to enjoy the entertainment rather than conversation. If you're hungry, dine at small tables or scattered couches in the lounge. Choices include beef Bourguignonne, ale-battered Cajun crawfish, tuna tartar, grilled flatbread pizza and shredded chipotle tenderloin.

If fine dining and a quiet atmosphere is more your style, head upstairs, where the menu changes with the seasons. Recent summer offerings featured banana leaf salmon, sesame-rolled tenderloin medallions and miso curry ahi tuna. Some dishes were outstanding, some nothing special. One negative is the price; almost all entrees top $30, which we thought was a little high for Green Bay, even for fine dining.

No matter the season, the restaurant's namesake Black and Tan is always a good choice. The center-cut tenderloin comes atop an oven-bronzed Gorgonzola brochette topped with caramelized onions and surrounded by natural jus demi and a chevre demi swirl. (Translation: tenderloin topped with black and tan sauces.)  It’s tender enough to cut with a fork.
