Andy Larson is bringing
the second location of his popular Bowls restaurant in
Walker’s Point to Mequon Public Market.
MEQUON — Bowls, a popular restaurant in Milwaukee’s
Walker’s Point neighborhood, was announced Friday as the
latest addition to the Mequon Public Market.
Owner Andy Larson said he got the idea for Bowls while
eating at a restaurant in Portland, Ore.
“It was so hard to find fresh, delicious and nourishing
food that is quick that will not make you feel heavy and
tired after eating,” said Larson, who also owns Float
“I love the idea of a bowl as you can put so many things
in this one dish to mix flavors and ingredients while
getting a full meal with lots of variety in one dish,”
Larson said he is very enthusiastic about joining Mequon
Public Market, which will feature approximately 10
vendors in a food hall that is similar to Milwaukee
Public Market, which has enjoyed great popularity in its
location just south of downtown Milwaukee.
Other announced tenants are Anodyne Coffee, Beans &
Barley, Purple Door Ice Cream, Café Corazon, Bavette La
Boucherie, Screaming Tuna and Happy Dough Lucky.
Bowls features a varIeiy of healthy options at its
current Walker’s Point location at 201 W. Freshwater Way
in Milwaukee. More information is available online at
was blown away by this project,” Larson said. “The high
quality of the design as well as the other tenants, most
of which I’m familiar with.
“Cindy and Jenni are so passionate about the project and
it is so well thought out,” he said, referring to
Shaffer Development founder Cindy Shaffer and Jenni
Vetter, its chief operating officer.
“I just knew Bowls had to be part of it from the first
time I met with them and saw the layout,” he added. “It
is also the perfect opportunity for Bowls to expand its
reach to the north and bring in a wider base of every
day and catering customers.”
Shaffer welcomed her newest Mequon Public Market tenant
in a news release.
“As a frequent customer and fan of Bowls, this will fill
a unique category that is missing from the North Shore,”
Shaffer said. “This is the perfect addition to our mix
at Spur 16 and Andy is an excellent partner.”
Mequon Public Market at Spur 16 is located at
Mequon Road. It will be adjacent to St. Paul Fish Co.,
which will be the sole tenant in the “smokestack
building,” which also is being renovated.
Other portions of the Spur 16 development, which is
between the Ozaukee Interurban Trail and Buntrock
Avenue, are a wellness building, a townhome development
and three buildings with apartments. The development
will begin opening this spring.
