Bavette is owned and operated by Karen Bell, a Milwaukee native with over 20 years culinary experience around the world. She has lived and worked in Chicago, San Francisco, Paris, Madrid and Caracas, with each place adding to her culinary identity. Along the way and as her career progressed, she became more interested in where our food comes from and how it gets to our plates. After opening and successfully running her own restaurant in Madrid, Spain, she decided to move back to Milwaukee to embark on a new chapter. Opening a butcher shop was her way of carrying on a dying craft, honoring time old culinary traditions as well as providing a direct link from farmer to consumer. When not in the kitchen, Bell has a passion for travel and food and wine from around the world and now leads food and wine trips to mostly Spain, but also Portugal and South America. Bell was honored to be nominated as a semi-finalist for James Beard Best Chef, Midwest region, in 2017 and a finalist in 2018.
