For 63 years, the James Beard Award winning Three Brothers restaurant has been serving up not only delicious, comforting Serbian fare, but a level of hospitality that few other restaurants can rival. This family-owned restaurant was birthed of necessity; but its legacy has become one of love, family and tradition that has been carried through three generations.

On this week’s podcast, we talk to Patricia and Milunka Radecevic about the history of the restaurant, which was founded by Milun Radecevic in 1956. Along the way, we discuss the provenance of Serbian fare and the beloved dishes which keep diners coming back again and again. Patricia shares the story of how she met her husband Branko and how she supported him by learning to make all of his mother’s Serbian recipes. Meanwhile, Milunka talks about growing up in her family’s restaurant, visiting Serbia for the first time and the challenges of running the family business after her father’s passing. Both share stories about the love and passion that have kept the restaurant a vibrant part of the Milwaukee food scene for over six decades.
