In 2002, Tim Dixon sought to build on a challenging grade in the Brewer’s Hill neighborhood. By designing a multi-level restaurant, bar and office space, he maximized the available land and captured Milwaukee’s breathtaking skyline view. After looking to Napa Valley for a unique inspiration, Dixon was able to create an award-winning development that drew in one of the top chef-owned restaurants in the nation.
When Roots Restaurant & Cellar closed in 2012, Tim Dixon once again turned a vacancy into an opportunity. In less than 60 days, he redesigned the restaurant space and overall concept and opened Wolf Peach, which is now a nationally recognized farm-to-table restaurant and one of the top eateries in Milwaukee.
“It shifts a diner’s equilibrium to walk in to a new restaurant that’s taken over the space of an old, familiar haunt. So it was when I visited Wolf Peach, the restaurant that opened earlier this month in the former Roots space to gather a first impression… But Wolf Peach is its own restaurant, as it should be… Inside it’s a mix of the handcrafted and the fancy: bare wooden tables and crystal chandeliers (if the scent of oil-rubbed wood reminds you of The Iron Horse Hotel, recall that Tim Dixon owns both the hotel and Wolf Peach.)… Wolf Peach delivered what many other restaurants lately haven’t been able to.” -Milwaukee Journal Sentinel- November 23rd, 2012
“Wolf Peach has exploded on both the local and national restaurant scenes throughout the last year… Chef Jacobs smiled while explaining how he and his staff love creating ‘food with a soul that honors and respects local purveyors and farmers’.” -Boelter SuperStore Blog September, 2013
“If you don’t normally make it to the Brewer’s Hill area, Wolf Peach should be your reason.” -Milwaukeemag.com December 19th, 2012
