Mexican Kitchen & Bar

La Dama Mexican Kitchen and Bar offers authentic Mexican cooking with a modern twist!  Using all of the freshest ingredients available, the focus of our food is inspired by the kitchens and markets of Mexico City, Puebla and Oaxaca. Enjoy our laid back atmosphere with a thoughtfully created craft cocktail or a glass of one of our many Spanish wines – or be adventurous and dive into our vast list of tequilas and mezcals by trying a flight!

Authentic, Modern, Mexican!

Dine indoors in our bustling Cantina or dine outdoors within our beautiful screened-in patio! Located just south of downtown Milwaukee, in the historic Walker’s Point neighborhood, we look forward to sharing this modern take on traditional Mexican food with you!


Every Thursday! Get the party started with $2 Blue Point Oysters! Every Thursday La Dama offers TWO different styles of Oysters – one the delicious standby from our menu and another all-new “special” preparation.

Chef Emmanuel Corona

Emmanuel Corona had been a long time chef and colleague with Crazy Water for 20 years when asked about exploring a Mexican concept. Emmanuel had thoughts on this for quite some time and jumped at the idea – La Dama was finally born! He shared “I look forward to becoming a part of, and growing with La Dama. My goal is to see us create a Mexican restaurant that Milwaukee has never seen.”

Emmanuel, originally a local of Puebla and Mexico City, garnered his culinary skills from various sources. His first introduction into the food world took place at a young age with his grandmother and mother where he learned the art of making mole poblano and mole negro among other traditional favorites from the area.

Emmanuel and Peggy Magister began working together at her first restaurant in Cedarburg, The Fork Café. After 5 years he followed her to Crazy Water where he continued to hone his skills learning American fusion cuisine. Emanuel slowly incorporated many of his flavors into the Crazy Water menu. After 20 years he and Peggy worked together to create La Dama Mexican Kitchen and Bar.
