Welcome to our kitchen

1033 is a casual, yet elevated restaurant and wine bar at our kitchen counter, featuring a variety of shared plates, charcuterie, cheeses, wine and craft cocktails.

This restaurant is a concept born from years of conversation, bottles of wine and great meals of our own. It’s a restaurant built not only on our collective culinary and hospitality experience, but our passion for connecting people through food and wine.

1033 is elegance and sophistication, yet simple and approachable with a focus on the highest standards of hospitality and servitude.

This is how WE like to wine and dine, and now we get to share it with YOU.

meet chef adam kemmler

At the ripe old age of thirty, Adam has literally been around the world to hone his culinary and leadership skills. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA., Adam caught the bug of cooking while helping his mom in the kitchen while watching shows such as Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares.

Adam made it a point early on to work in many diverse restaurants and learn all types of cuisine. He quickly learned that to one day achieve his dream of becoming an Executive Chef, he would have to be more than a great line cook. Adam focused on learning the business side of the industry such as proper ordering, inventory, food costs, labor cost and soft touch leadership skills. In 2017 he was offered the Sous Chef position at the Italian eatery, Piccolina’s followed by Burgh Bites/Brick ‘N’ Mortar.

In 2020, Adam decided it was time to leave home with the intention of moving to Chicago for some big city experience and tutelage. He packed his bags and decided to start his Midwest journey in the great city of MKE. He found a home at the local, critically acclaimed Le Reve Patisserie & Café lead by Chef/Owner Andrew Schneider. Here Adam learned the classic French cooking techniques that would become a strong foundation for his career.   

In 2021, he took a major step in his culinary career by taking an interim position at Noma, in Copenhagen. Noma has repeatedly topped the lists of the world's best restaurants, and its creator, René Redzepi, has been hailed as his era's most brilliant and influential chef. Adam worked 18-hour days, five days a week, on a diet of coffee, cigs and airline food which was supplied to him by his host who was a flight attendant. Here, Adam learned how to be a “true professional” by recognizing that “no one thing is more important than the next”.  

On his return to the states, Adam was so impacted by his time in MKE that he decided not to move to Chicago, but instead make his home in MKE. He was offered a Sous Chef position with the highly anticipated Lupi and Iris, owned and operated by the local legend Chef Adam Siegel. Adam very quickly became a pillar of leadership for Chef Adam helping with establishing procedures, inventory standards and training of all new employees.  

We could not be more blessed and honored that Adam reached out to us months before we opened 1033 inquiring about the project. From our first meeting, we knew how rare and special it was to have found someone like Adam. His passion for the culinary arts, hospitality and human interaction was evident from day one. We look forward to growing with Adam, learning from him, and creating many amazing meals for the great city of MKE!

Meet gm tori karll

Tori was bitten by the industry bug at an early age when she started hosting at a local Milwaukee restaurant. She would go on to serve, bartend, and eventually accept her first managerial position at the young age of 23. She joined our company in 2022 when she took on a sales role at our first property, 2A Wine Merchants in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward. Her strong beverage background and passion for hospitality made her an instant fit. Through her time at 2A she completed her WSET Level 1 studies and became a fixture in the wine shop. When it came time to open 1033 in early 2023 she jumped at the opportunity to take on a new challenge as the opening General Manager. 

Tori is passionate about leading the guest experience at 1033 through holding the highest level of service standards as well as continuing to develop our focused wine and cocktail program. Taking a servitude approach to each guest that enters our property, she is our daily Front of the House leader and a true partner to Chef Adam and his culinary team.
