On the Burger Trail: The Drive By at Precinct Tap + Table

It’s been nearly two months since Precinct Tap + Table, the new restaurant from Chef Jodi Janisse Kanzenbach, opened in Germantown. So my guess is that there’s still a good number of people who haven’t yet had the pleasure of paying a visit.

But there are plenty of reasons to put the new restaurant on your list, including its bright, industrial-inspired digs, open kitchen, quaint patio and locally focused, seasonal menu featuring creative appetizers, shareable plates, stone-fired pizzas and seasonal entrees like Caribbean mojo pork tenderloin, pan-seared walleye and onion crusted halibut as well as more casual options like sandwiches and burgers.

Nearly two years ago, I reviewed the Overstuffed Wisconsinite burger at Cafe Soeurette, Kanzenbach’s former restaurant in West Bend … and it was impressive. A renamed version of that burger is also on Precinct’s menu (it’s now called The Wisco Burger). But I was eager to try a brand new option: The Drive By.

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!

Chef

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
