A planned new restaurant on Milwaukee’s near west side − part of a larger development that includes restoring a historic former theater − is getting a big financing boost.

A $250,000 state grant will help pay for renovations at the future restaurant site, a former tavern at 2610 W. State St.

That pending grant, from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp., was disclosed at a Tuesday meeting of the Common Council’s Zoning, Neighborhoods and Development Committee.
