OCONOMOWOC - Two Sisters Cafe,
515 E. Wisconsin Ave., which replaced Around the Lakes
Family Restaurant, has closed down and will be placed with Buca,
a restaurant operating under the leadership of Benny Islami.
Two Sisters Cafe opened in February. Its abrupt
closure was announced by a note taped to the front door June 29,
which also stated the intention of the restaurant reopening
elsewhere in the city once an appropriate location is found.
Islami previously operated the restaurant Burnt
Toast in Oconomowoc, which is closed. He also managed Around the
Lakes for his family.
Buca will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner from
6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Two Sisters Cafe was operated by Mike Zekiri and
his family, who leased the property from Frank Suloja. Suloja
took over the restaurant in January 2013.
Prior to Suloja, Around the Lakes Family
Restaurant was under the same ownership, the Islami family, for
about 24 years.
Islami, relatives of whom have recently been
embroiled in an
arson scandal, now rents the location.
