Changes… 2016 will be a big year for us at Buckley’s Restaurant & Bar. Chef Christian Schroeder was offered and accepted an opportunity to take a position at another Milwaukee restaurant. We would like to thank him for his time and effort over the last year here at Buckley’s. We wish him the best of luck in his new position and we look forward to hearing about great things from him.
Having said that, we have decided to get the old gang back together! We are excited to announce that our friend and brother-in-arms, Chef Thi Cao has decided to make his way back to the Buckley family. Chef Thi directed our kitchen as Executive Chef from 2011 through 2015. During this time, he inspired all of us with his culinary skills and level of service, leading us to become one of the top restaurants in Milwaukee. He has remained a close friend and this was the perfect time to welcome Thi back into the fold. In the coming year, the Buckley family will be embarking on a growth plan that will significantly change our footprint in the downtown area. We couldn’t be more excited to have Chef Thi with us to help plan, direct, and execute all of these big plans for the restaurant. We have the utmost respect for his culinary talents, level of service, amazing mentoring skills, and his understanding of this crazy business. Those of you that have already enjoyed the amazing things he has done at Buckley’s, please help us welcome him back. For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure, we are delighted to have you meet him and share in his passion for food. This is an exciting time for Buckley’s and the Buckley family. We would love for you to be a part of this excitement!
