Relaxed fine dining in downtown Waukesha

I wonder how many people walk past this place and have no idea how special it is inside. The front is very small, but the restaurant extends way back into this historic building. Inside the decor is upscale trendy. Happy hour at the bar features $5 house wines, but that is all for the specials. We enjoy having tapas at the bar, and have not found it crowded or noisy. Last night we had two tapas. The first was Root Beer Braised Ribs: Baby back pork ribs covered in a jalapeno-peach barbeque sauce and topped with hay stack onion rings. These are exquisite! The meat is so flavorful, and it is tender without being mushy or falling completely apart. My husband enjoyed them very much as well, and he does not eat BBQ sauce as a rule.

Unfortunately the Jibarito Sliders were not good. I know that true Puerto Rican food is fairly bland, so I won’t knock them too much on the lack of seasoning. However, the fried plaintain “buns” were virtually inedible. You could not bite through or cut them, so the sliders exploded all over the place when you tried to eat them.

It is really nice that they are going to change their menu monthly. They offer vegetarian and gluten-free options, which are not so easy to find around here.

Root Beer Braised Ribs

This is a must-have tapas dish. Exquisite! The meat is so flavorful, and it is tender without being mushy or falling completely apart. My husband enjoyed them very much as well, and he does not eat BBQ sauce as a rule.

Jibarito Sliders A Puerto Rican sandwich made with twice-fried plantain, slow-cooked chicken breast, lettuce, guacamole, tomato and garlic chipotle aioli. Plantains were harder than melba toast and virtually inedible.

Try one of everything

Gen5 is a tapas style restaurant in downtown waukesha. They have a great ambiance, attentive staff, great specialty drinks and best of all their food is delicious.
There were some things on the menu that I thought were just OK, but there are so many off the beaten path items or combinations that your best bet is to come with a large group and order a bunch of different things to share.
The only drawback about doing that is you’ll need to spend some money for all that sampling. I’d say average per person for a group of 4 will be around $35 with tax and tip sans alcohol.
But do give Gen5 a try, I am betting you won’t be disappointed.

grilled asparagus

very tasty, even one person who doesn’t like asparagus thought this dish was good.
