First Known Restaurant at Drexel Town Square Emerges

Brick 3 Pizza, owned by developer Rick Barrett, will have a location on the Main Street area of Drexel Town Square, according to a report.

Community leaders and developers of the Drexel Town Square project have heard loud and clear Oak Creek residents' desire for new restaurants to be part of the development.

On Wednesday, the first known restaurant emerged.

Brick 3 Pizza, a New York-style pizzeria with locations on Old World Third Street and Milwaukee Street in downtown Milwaukee, will have a location on the Main Street area of Drexel Town Square, according Patch's media partners at BizTimes Milwaukee.

The restaurant is owned by Rick Barrett, who is developing the residential portion of the project.

Brick 3 is expected to be one of multiple food options at the development. City officials and developers are hoping to attract more restaurants to the downtown portion as well as on land adjacent to Drexel Avenue and Howell Avenue, on the outskirts of a parking lot for a proposed Meijer store.

"I feel extremely confident there will be a mix of restaurants and a mix of food and beverage opportunities here," developer Blair Williams told Patch in an interview last week.

Wednesday's news is the latest in a busy week for Drexel Town Square, planned for the corner of Drexel and Howell avenues on the former Delphi site.

A public meeting held Monday night at the Oak Creek Community Center drew more than 200 people, many of whom continued to express skepticism over a Meijer store proposed for the site.

Developers also presented an animated video and renderings that provided the best visual to date of what the development will look like. View the video and renderings here.

DiCarlo isn't exactly high end. If you ever leave the 'burb, you will see that prices are much higher in other metro restaurants, even in chain restaurants. I don't think having an optical in the same building really adds to its "elegance" either. There are no upscale dining establishments in this city, and it's a shame. When I first moved here, I thought it was going to be an up and coming progressive place, but now I am realizing it's filled with a bunch of country bumpkins.

I totally agree, Oak Creek has the right mayor for the job. He listens and he acts appropriately.

OC could use another eating facility, but not pizza. Not saying this place is good or bad because never had it, but maybe a little classier place might be cool. I personally would like to see a a nice salad bar place like Ponderosa like establishment be in there. A steak joint included.

kid, I agree with you on a steak joint being needed. Oak Creek has a few pizza places, and Italian restaurants, so I can't see any more of them being needed. Something along the lines of The Rafters, which has been closed for the past few years, would be nice.
