Southern Italy meets America at Café Mulino (Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin)


SMALL BITE: Café Mulino is tucked inside the Hotel Mead and Conference Center in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin—cranberry country. Interestingly, Hotel Mead has a lock on hospitality in the city as the only full-service hotel in the area.

SIGNATURE DISHES: The Grand Avenue, a seared beef tenderloin smothered with garlic mushrooms and Tortellini with Vodka Sauce. Oh, you gotta try the Italian Cheese Fries, too!

DISH FROM DINERS: “Very impressed with this restaurant. Sundays and Mondays are buy an entree, get one half off. Soup and salad bar comes with every entree. Loved the idea that the salad dressing are in easy-to-pour pitchers.”

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: In the mood for pizza? You can build your own with a bevy of toppings, from onions, ricotta cheese and pineapple to Portabella mushrooms, slice meatballs and shrimp. All cooked in a wood-fire oven.
