Church & Market Kenosha Restaurant

Kenosha’s new kid on the block has quickly become a gathering spot for local residents and visitors to the city. Open since September 2023 in a historical downtown building on 56th Street (formerly the corner of Church & Market), the namesake location is a warm and welcome addition to Kenosha’s dining options.

Stop in for drinks or stay for dinner–either way, the options are approachable, whether it’s a cold draft beer or a glass of wine. Or choose an option from the cocktail list like the After Church Manhattan, the Prohibition Sour featuring Old Forester 1920 Bourbon or a unique twist of the Jalisco Old Fashioned made with Herradura Reposado Tequila, chipotle-cacao bitters and cinnamon syrup. Unique to Church & Market is Tito’s Vodka Express Martini with a house-made secret recipe on draft. We love the non-alcoholic cocktails options like the NA-groni and Spiritless Margarita – both so light and refreshing you don’t even miss the booze. And check out the restaurant’s two NA wines by California grower, Hand on Heart.

Church & Market’s menu is tapas style and all about sharing a few bites with friends and family. Menu staples include truffle fries, calamari and chicken wings as well as twists like artichoke dip jalapeno poppers, parmesan-crusted asparagus and tenderloin steak shish kabob skewers with veggies on a bed of buttery coconut rice. Add shrimp for the perfect surf and turf option.

PB&J Beignets

The “Bratcuterie” plate screams “Wisconsin.” This delightful mash-up includes perfectly grilled and tender bratwurst, soft Bavarian pretzels, sauerkraut, house-made pickled vegetables and, of course, warm beer cheese and honey-mustard dippers. Not to be missed is manager Andy’s brainchild, Church’s PB&J Beignets, a pastry reminiscent of childhood with warm peanut butter and jelly dipping sauces.  

Look for the Chef Special of the Week like ceviche – which awakens the palate with fresh lime avocado and cilantro served on a crunchy tortilla. Specials are announced on the Facebook page.

Downstairs contains a large bar area and dining space with warm colors, exposed brick, wood tables and accent greenery (the dining space can also be sectioned off for private parties). Upstairs boasts another bar as well as high tops and cozy lounge seating in front of the warming fireplace. Church & Market has already seen great success with its variety of spaces that can be used for showers, corporate events, engagement parties, anniversaries and even weddings (up to 250 people). Sure to be a favorite spot, the rooftop patio will be opening with full bar service this coming May. Whichever area you choose, the space is beautiful with a classy elegance, but pleasantly welcoming and comfortable like home.

Current events include a 30- to 40-person monthly cocktail class on the second Wednesday of each month, and new events are added regularly.
