The roads thawed after an icy day of winter weather, and my husband and I craved an evening outside of our apartment for once. After more than two years in Green Bay, we finally went to 1919 Kitchen and Tap within Lambeau Field. We’ve walked past it on multiple visits with friends that have come up to the area, usually out of concern about price. For two people with a relatively limited appetite, willing to share a few plates, those concerns were much more easily bypassed.
To get to the restaurant, one has to go through the atrium of Lambeau and pass the fan shop to get up to the second floor. When we arrived, the shop was still open. It’s worth keeping in mind for friends in the future if we want to kill two birds with one stone– eat and shop in one stop. We came for food only, however, so we bypassed that opportunity to get to 1919 upstairs.
There was no wait when we arrived, likely because it was a Wednesday evening. The tables toward the center of the main dining area are surrounded by four very comfortable chairs, and being sat there wound up being a good thing for us over the course of the evening. We had a long wait and a mishap with our appetizers, but we had our drinks, an open kitchen to turn around and look into, and college basketball in every corner of the room to keep us busy.
A Green Bay Restaurant Week 2021 Review
Restaurant Week falling during the week of my birthday is perhaps the greatest gift I could have ever received. Delayed during COVID, my husband and I enjoyed ourselves last September at Hagemeister Park to a gorgeous, three course meal for our anniversary. The city likes to gift us with tasty treats on important occasions, and so my husband and I made reservations at Taverne in the Sky during restaurant week to taste deliciousness and enjoy the sight of Titletown from on high.
We have never been here before. During our many visits to the west side, we have looked at the Lodge Kohler resort with jealousy. The building is beautiful. It looks like a place for good meals and good times, even while sipping a beer at its next door neighbor, Hinterland Brewery. We arrived for a delicious birthday dinner early Saturday evening to take in a night overlooking Titletown.
