Italian restaurant coming to 'The Trade' hotel in Milwaukee's Deer District

NOW: Italian restaurant coming to ’The Trade’ hotel in Milwaukee’s Deer District


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Work is progressing on a new luxury hotel and restaurant in the Deer District -- it's called The Trade Milwaukee.

We've learned the name of the new restaurant is Il Cervo, Italian for "the deer." It will feature classic and traditional interpretations of Italian cuisine.

It's just one of a number of developments that are transforming downtown Milwaukee.

"We really wanted to celebrate within the trade. We wanted to celebrate how things are made, not just how they're built, but celebrate food, how food is made, how people experience the rich history of the city of Milwaukee," said Andy Inman of The Trade Milwaukee. 

Of course you can't have that authentic Italian pizza without a brick oven, right? 

On Monday, crews hoisted a 4,500-lb. oven to the ninth floor. 

The hotel is scheduled to open in spring of next year.
