MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A new restaurant is coming to Milwaukee's Third Ward. 

On Thursday, Benson's Restaurant Group announced plans to debut a new restaurant in the space formerly occupied by Wahlburgers on N. Broadway Street.

Design and reconstruction work is beginning immediately, according to a press release. 

“We’ve had such an exciting past few months celebrating with neighbors, friends and foodies across the region and guess what – we’re doing it again. Our team is absolutely thrilled to be bringing another restaurant option to the Third Ward, a location we consider home,” said David Marcus, CEO of Benson’s Restaurant Group. “We’re looking forward to sharing more details soon about the concept and menu, but as with all of our restaurants, you can expect delicious food, craft drinks and an atmosphere unique to the area.”

The hospitality group says this will be their sixth restaurant, and their fourth in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward, in addition to Onesto, Smoke Shack and Blue Bat Kitchen & Tequilaria. 

Benson’s Restaurant Group also operates AJ Bombers in downtown Milwaukee and The Bridgewater Modern Grill in the Bay View area.

The new restaurant is slated to open in summer of 2023 and is expected to support 60 jobs once open.
