Blue's Egg Shorewood closes with plans to reconcept as dinner & brunch spot

Black Shoe hospitality has made the difficult decision to close Blue's Egg Shorewood, 4195 N. Oakland Ave., the restaurant they opened in May of 2018.

"This is the last thing any business owner wants to do, but we do it with gratitude for where we have been. We thank all the team members who have worked at Blue's Egg in Shorewood for the hard work, energy, and effort," says Black Shoe Hospitality co-owner Dan Sidner. "We made a lot of people happy over the last year and a half, and that is a worthy thing to have done."

But there's a glimmer of hope in the news.

A new restaurant concept focused on dinner service, along with brunch service on Saturday and Sunday, is slated to replace the Blue's concept moving forward. The timeline on the project remains up in the air, due to current circumstances; however the team would like to open as soon as possible.

The new Shorewood restaurant will move forward with its current ownership team, which includes Sidner, Chef Joe Muench, and Black Shoe's administrator Amy Kerstein and director of operations Jason Kerstein. The Kersteins also joined the ownership team of the Milwaukee location of Blue's Egg in 2020.

Gift cards purchased from Blue's Egg in Shorewood (along with points and credit earned from Black Shoe Hospitality's Best Guest Club will be redeemable at the new restaurant, as well as Maxie's, Blue's Egg in Milwaukee, and Story Hill BKC).

Maxie's and Story Hill BKC will continue offering curbside pick-up during limited hours.

Blue's Egg Milwaukee remains closed, but will reopen when restrictions on in-house dining are lifted. Maxie's and Story Hill BKC also plan to reopen for in-house dining when restrictions on those services are lifted.
