Shanghai Bistro

2930 Craig Rd.
Eau Claire, WI

A contemporary urban atmosphere thrives at Shanghai Bistro. Using centuries-old preparation techniques while experimenting with fresh, new seafood (and other ingredients) from well beyond the Midwest, the Bistro's chefs keep things lively. There's a large selection of signature sushi, including the Red Dragon Roll, and the Strange Flavor Chicken stir-fry is a local favorite. Check out sushi happy hour from 3 to 5pm weekdays. Shanghai consistently ranks as the Best Restaurant of Asian Food in V1's annual reader poll. Outdoor seating, vegetarian friendly.

Milwaukee Burger Company

2620 E Clairemont Ave.
Eau Claire, WI

Though the name might suggest this restaurant is a regional import, it’s not – Milwaukee Burger is native to Eau Claire. The menu features lots of great burger combinations and all sorts of tasty drink concoctions. If no particular combo is catching your eye, Milwaukee Burger offers a "build your own" menu. By the way, their gigantic cheese curds are matched by none (taking first place in the 2015 Best Of reader poll) and they boast a whopping 32 tap beers. Open late, free wifi, takes reservations. Receive a free birthday shot (over 21) or a free birthday meal if you bring 8+ people (under $9.99).
