Former Industri Cafe chef takes helm at Delafield restaurants

Chef Robert Klemm, former owner of Industri Cafe in Walker's Point and chef at The Villa at Heaven City, has accepted a new position as executive chef for two Delafield-area restaurants owned by Dennis Sobczak and Jessie Souza: Fishbone's Cajun & Creole Restaurant, 1704 Milwaukee St., and Zin, a California-style Italian restaurant located at 629 Main St.

The news comes on the heels of news that The Villa at Heaven City, S91W27850 National Ave. in Mukwonago, has permanently closed its doors.

Although the restaurant will not be open for regular business, it will honor its commitment to customers who have made reservations for private events and chef tables through the end of 2017.

Plans have also fallen through for La Plancha, a Honduran restaurant Klemm that planned to open this fall on Historic Mitchell Street.

Klemm, who got married this past summer and is expecting a daughter this spring, says the new post will give him more time to spend with his new family. He says new menus for both venues will be forthcoming in December and January.
