Breaking all the rules

Precinct Tap + Table opens July 31 in Germantown

There’s a brand new restaurant opening its doors in the heart of Germantown this week, and it promises to offer an experience unlike any other venues in the area.

Precinct Tap + Table opens Wednesday, July 31 at 4 p.m. at W161 N11629 Church St.

At the helm is Jodi Janisse-Kanzenbach, a chef who blazed trails opening her first restaurant, Cafe Soeurette, in West Bend in 2007; and her new project promises to do the same in Germantown.

The popular cafe, which closed in late June to make way for the new project, was among the first restaurants in Washington County to adopt a farm-to-table ethos, sourcing both meats and produce from local farms and taking regular advantage of the weekly farmer’s market just outside their front doors. 

Precinct Tap + Table will reflect a similar approach, offering diners a menu of appetizers, shareable plates, stone-fired pizzas and entrees using fresh, seasonal ingredients.

Why the Name Change?

My partner always referred to the location as the precinct.
I asked why? He said it was the first location
of the Germantown Police Station!
I couldn't get the name out of my head!

You know what? It just sounded fun & easy to remember.

Like you want to meet there for cocktails and bite after work.
And it makes you feel like you are kinda doing something naughty: drinking, eating & hanging out at The PRECINCT!

Local owner and Executive Chef Jodi Janisse-Kanzenbach is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, Minneapolis/St Paul. Precinct was born from the location being the old Police Station in Germantown. The name came from a conversation with Jodi and one of the other owners.

“I will never sacrifice quality of service or food; they go hand-in-hand. In a world where customer service seems to be disappearing, and cold corporate chain restaurants are prevalent, my staff and I strive to give the best experience to our patrons.” – Chef Jodi
