USE OUR CRITIC’S PICKS FOR YOUR RE­HEARSAL DIN­NER

Milwaukee Weddings - - How to Throw the Milwaukee-est Weddings Ever -

Just like the wed­ding it­self, the re­hearsal din­ner can be ca­sual or pol­ished. Four Ann Chris­ten­son-ap­proved places to hold this im­por­tant event:

● BRAISE’S sec­ond-floor event space is rus­tic but el­e­gant, a fit­ting com­pan­ion for the farm-to-ta­ble cui­sine. Menu op­tions are var­ied – ap­pe­tiz­ers and desserts, in­di­vid­u­ally plated dishes or a meal served fam­ily-style – and uti­lize lo­cal, sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents. Seated din­ners can serve up to 40 at ta­bles or up to 90 for cock­tails on the rooftop deck. (1101 S. Sec­ond St., 414-212-8843)

Put a meat­less spin on the din­ner with a falafe­land-salad spec­tac­u­lar catered by Bay View’s HELLO FALAFEL, whose falafel sand­wich plat­ters, sal­ads and sides (roasted Moroc­can car­rots, wa­ter­melon salad, lentil soup) tar­get not only the veg­e­tar­ian/ve­gan crowd; the bold fla­vors score with car­ni­vores, too. (2301 S. How­ell Ave.; 414-509-5924 or info@hellofalafelmke.com)

The warm, di­verse cul­tures of Oax­aca are the inspiration for JALAPEÑO LOCO, which can serve dishes like mole verde and pork- and plan­tain-stuffed poblanos buf­fet-style in its ban­quet room. The pri­vate space ac­com­mo­dates 30-80 peo­ple and has its own bar. (5067 S. How­ell Ave., 414-483-8300)

● KEGEL’S INN can han­dle par­ties up to 100 peo­ple in its gor­geously Teu­tonic mu­raled-and-wood-beamed din­ing room. Pick a Wis­con­sin fish fry theme or a Ger­man af­fair fea­tur­ing Sauer­braten and Wiener Sch­nitzel (5901 W. Na­tional Ave., 414-257-9999).
