The Beach House Bistro, a small plate restaurant, will open in Pewaukee


A restaurateur who has owned several establishments plans to open what he calls his “perfect location” in Pewaukee in early December.

Llazar Konda’s Beach House Bistro has a smooth opening on December 3-4 and is expected to be fully open after that.

The small restaurant is located at 161 W. Wisconsin Ave. Suite 1J, village of Pewaukee. The location was previously home to the Italian Ruggeri Market, which closed in May.

“The reception I get from the community is amazing,” said Konda.

Konda previously owned Meli and the Crepe Cafe, both in Waukesha. Meli offered a menu of small and large plates, as well as a mix of sandwiches.

Pewaukee's Beach House Bistro will be opening soon.

The Beach House Bistro menu will focus on small, shareable plates.

“I like to call it a small plate restaurant more than Mediterranean,” said Konda, from Athens, Greece.

The menu will include falafels.

“It’s called street food in Europe,” Konda said. “It’s a beautiful, healthy and complete item to have on the menu. “

Local cold meats and cheeses will also be served at the bistro.

Konda, who has been in the restaurant business for 25 years, also owned two restaurants in Athens.
