Winter weather and mac pair perfectly.

O'Lydia's unveils new menu

Take a sip of this story, brought to you by SoulBoxer – quality, ready-to-drink cocktails that promise less time making, more time drinking. Put a little soul in your life, Milwaukee.

Last week, O'Lydia's, 338 S. 1st St., introduced a new menu that focuses on "elevated bar food and sharable appetizers," according to manager Rick Sackett.

"We did away with some apps that weren't doing well and all of our dinners," says Sackett. "People just don't come here for 'dinner dinner.'"

The updated menu has new sandwiches, including a tasty pulled-pork sandwich made with a Guinness and Jameson glaze ($11) and a "Macs" section with a variety of macaroni and cheese dishes, including our new favorite bacon-and-gouda mac topped with blue cheese ($9) that is creamy, flavorful and fantastically comfort foody. There's also a Wisconsin mac and cheese, alfredo mac and buffalo chicken mac.

"We just introduced the mac and cheese last week and it's already killing it," says Sackett. "We also refreshed our presentation with new plates and dishes. It was time for a facelift and we wanted everything to look and taste very now."

Most importantly to this diner, O'Lydia's still offers its incredible reuben rolls and serves late night. Dig in, Milwaukee.
