MILWAUKEE — After 10 years of being located at 724 N. Milwaukee St., Carnevor Steakhouse Moderne will move down the street in November.

The restaurant’s operator, SURG Restaurant Group, announced the business will move to 718 N. Milwaukee St., which is currently operating as Umami Moto. Owners Michael Polaski and Omar Shaikh stated they could not come to terms on the new lease with the landlord so they have decided to move the popular restaurant to a new site.

SURG has a long-term lease for 718 N. Milwaukee St.

“Carnevor has become a flagship for SURG and we are excited to renovate the new location giving our steakhouse an updated space,” Polaski said in a statement. “Moving to this spot makes perfect sense; In addition to our large wine cellar already located there, the close proximity to the original restaurant will allow all guests to easily find the new venue.”

In addition, SURG is working on a new project that will be headed up by Umami Moto Executive Chef Israel Cruz that will be more American in style while still highlighting the skill and Asian cuisine of the executive chef.
