The National Is Really International8/24/2015
The National will be closed on Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
Welcome to The National, located in the heart of Milwaukee's Walker's Point neighborhood, just south of downtown. We love Walker's Point for its rich history, traditions, and unique flavor and are honored to be a part of this tapestry. Almost everything we offer is made from scratch, and we use the best of fresh, locally sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible. From our olive tapenade to our ginger-infused yogurt, from house-made hummus to the basil pesto. Expect flavor, originality, and only the best ingredients.
Our team embodies the spirit of The National. They are hard-working, bright, talented, fun-loving souls that enjoy the arts of cooking, serving and making people happy.
Dancer, catering maestro, ray of sunshine.
Beverage manager with a heart of gold and a funky style.
I'm not the master and the genius behind our much sought after Huevos rancheros.
Mr. congeniality. Lover of cheese and music.
Artist, animal lover and French toast connoisseur.
The noodle man with a flair for sarcasm and a quick wit.
We’re coming up on The National’s 4-Year-Anniversary, on December 1st, 2015! We can’t believe it’s already been four years. Thank you to everyone who’s supported us and got us this far!
Congratulations to Nell for releasing her new book, Ramen Fusion Cookbook, out October 6th, 2015!
