Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - TAP WEEKEND - Con­tact Carol Dep­tolla at carol.dep­tolla@jrn.com, (414) 224-2841 or on Twit­ter, @mkediner.

You wouldn’t rec­og­nize the for­mer auto me­chan­ics shop at 52nd and Sil­ver Spring, with its new sid­ing and large win­dows. That’s where the new House of Corned Beef is sched­uled to de­but Wed­nes­day, 10 blocks from its cur­rent lo­ca­tion.

It will open at 5201 W. Sil­ver Spring Drive, af­ter clos­ing on Sun­day night at 6200 W. Sil­ver Spring Drive, where it opened in 2010.

The new lo­ca­tion gives the res­tau­rant a big­ger kitchen and prox­im­ity to po­ten­tial cus­tomers at the Army Re­serve base across the street in what owner Wa­jeeh Al­turk­man called a qui­eter neigh­bor­hood.

The move also makes him the owner of the build­ing in­stead of a renter. “I wanted to have my own place,” Al­turk­man said, “where peo­ple feel com­fort­able.”

The din­ing area is smaller, with a counter and a cou­ple of ta­bles that pro­vide 14 seats, but much of the res­tau­rant’s busi­ness is in take­out, Al­turk­man said.

The menu will stay the same for now: corned beef sand­wiches (start­ing at $9.69) plus sand­wiches in­clud­ing pas­trami, cat­fish, perch, chicken, turkey, Philly cheese steak and gy­ros.

Also on the menu are chicken wings (start­ing at $3.99 for four pieces), fried chicken (from $7.99 for four pieces), fried fish and shrimp (start­ing at $7.99 for fish, $13.99 for shrimp), piz­zas (from $14.99) and burg­ers and sausages (from $2.99 for a hot dog, $4.99 for a sin­glepatty burger).

The phone num­ber re­mains the same, (414) 4614292. Hours will be 10 a.m. to mid­night Mon­day to Satur­day, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sun­day.
