Kitchen Temporarily Closed. Opening Late Summer 2019.
Von Trier is proudly serving German-influenced food. We pride ourselves on using the highest quality meats, sausages, fresh ingredients, and local bakery to create a uniquely special, German-inspired culinary experience.
With the classic German Wursts including our very own Von Trier Bitburger Beer Bratwust, Ney's Big Sky Weisswurst, and Usinger's Knackwurst, Von Trier sets the bar for the classic German fare. We also feature unique, rotating sausages from Foltz Family Market in Milwaukee's Third Ward, Chef Martin, and from Ney's Big Sky Ranch out of Slinger, WI.
Our custom burger blend from Ney's Big Sky is a selection of grass-fed, pasture-raised beef, antibiotic and chemical-free consisting primarily of brisket, sirloin, and tri-tip cuts. For vegetarians, we offer the immensely popular Impossible Burger, produced with a plant-derived Heme that gives the veggie burger the taste and texture of meat.
