Chef Paul Funk & Saint Kate's secret steakhouse

When you head to a steakhouse, you know more or less what you’re going to get: quality steaks, probably seafood, and numerous comforting side dishes. All are generally served in a dimly lit environment with a traditional service model. But not at Saint Kate, Milwaukee’s first Arts Hotel, where everything is a bit unexpected.

On this week’s podcast, we chat with Saint Kate Executive Chef Paul Funk about his culinary journey, from his childhood interests in food, to his work in Colorado, France, Italy and Wyoming. We’ll also discuss how these experiences gave him a unique preparation for his role at Saint Kate, and his direction of the hotel’s “secret” steakhouse, The Dark Room (TDR). We discuss what makes the TDR experience unique, from its hidden entrance to its menu of uniquely delicious steakhouse-inspired items.
