– Only a year after opening its first location in
Brookfield, 8-Twelve MVP Bar and Grill will be expanding
with a second location in the Bayshore Town Center.
Owned by SURG Restaurant Group, along with Milwaukee
Brewer Ryan Braun and Green Bay Packer Aaron Rodgers,
8-Twelve MVP Bar and Grill opened on Bluemound Road last
summer. Since its opening, the restaurant has been
ranked as one of the top 20 athlete-owned restaurants by
“SURG Restaurant Group’s success is built on great
partnerships, whether it’s Ryan Braun and Aaron Rodgers
or 8-Twelve in a dynamic setting like Bayshore,” said
Omar Shaikh of SURG. “Our menu will feature a variety of
offerings for a range of customers, from those who enjoy
a high-quality meal and dining experience to those who
enjoy the experience of gathering with friends to watch
their favorite team in action.”
8-Twelve at Bayshore will get much of its produce, beef
and pork from the Hidden Creek Farm in New London, owned
and operated by SURG Restaurant Group owner and CEO Mike
Polaski. Ingredients will come from other Wisconsin
farms, as well, according to a company statement.
“Having enthusiastic support from Omar, my partner, and
that of Aaron and Ryan creates a strong force. As far as
the location goes, I couldn’t think of a better area
than Bayshore Town Center,” Polaski said.
8-Twelve at Bayshore Town Center will have private
dining rooms for conducting business during the week and
celebrating on weekends.
“We’re thrilled to have 8-Twelve join our lineup of
restaurant offerings,” said David Moss, general manager
at Bayshore Town Center. “Ryan Braun and Aaron Rodgers
are at the top of their respective games, and having
8-twelve at Bayshore keeps us at the top of our game,
which is providing our guests with a high-quality
shopping, dining and entertainment experience.”
The new 8-Twelve will be located in the space formally
occupied by COA, according to the company statement.
"We are very excited to be opening another 8-Twelve in a
very special setting like Bayshore Town Center," Braun
said. “I am thrilled to be able to continue my
involvement in the community and give back to the city
that has been so supportive throughout my career."
“With the great success we’ve already had at our
Brookfield location, Ryan and I are excited to bring the
8-Twelve brand to the North Shore,” Rodgers said. “The
new Bayshore location is as good as they come, and we’re
looking forward to providing the North Shore community
with the unique, quality dining experience 8-Twelve fans
have come to expect.”
