Hello. My name is Robert Klemm. I am currently the very proud Owner/Executive Chef of INdustri Cafe... HOWEVER that is all going to change in less than a month. Our lease is not being renewed and we are being forced to close at our current location.
INdustri was founded in 2010 and pays homage to all Milwaukee-based industries, including local music, artists, beer, liquor, farmers, etc, We locally source our food and often cater to those with special dietary restrictions and needs (ie: vegetarian & gluten free).
INdustri features classic dishes in the New American Style. Our focus is on technique and freshness, while delivering the highest quality product at a reasonable price. We proudly support Wisconsin and everything local.
Our establishment was well recognized in the immediate area, and throughout Milwaukee. We attracted good clientele, and we employed people from the local area. We have 4 years of successful restaurant experience in the Walker's Point area, and many more years of experience in the restaurant industry.
We are trying to raise enough money to allow us to relocate and stay in the Walker's Point area. Hopefully we will be able to buy our own building in Walker's Point, and continuing to serve the area's needs. At minimum, we need to raise enough funds for a security deposit and the necessary equipment.
In the mean time, I will be moon lighting around the city to help raise funds and awareness. For example, you can catch me every Wednesday and Thursday at Shakers Cigar Bar putting out creative and phenomenal food. If you haven't been it's a spectacular place. Then on Tuesday, May 20th I will be cooking a 4 course wine dinner at Vino 100 in the Third Ward. (Menu coming soon!)
We are terribly saddened to be loosing our home, where people have come to love our great food and famous bloody marys. The only way we can bring you the same great atmosphere, service and quality is through your generosity.
Please donate toward the cause. INdustri is more than just a restaurant! It's been our home. You can help the dream live on! #SaveINdustri
