Located near the newly refurbished Athletic Park on Wausau’s northeast side, Thrive Foodery is the endeavor of two talented area chefs, Elizabeth Hinner and David Lorio. To create the perfect locale to showcase their food, they renovated an old warehouse and sought out local crafts people for the project. The result is a true destination restaurant and the transformation is a must-see. Their open minded approach to food is a Modern American style cuisine. The pair strives to include a locally-sourced ingredient in every dish. Entrees like fork-tender ossobuco, featuring pork shanks slow braised with vegetables and herbs in a flavorful broth, are crafted with care. The décor has a chic, industrial vibe, yet the atmosphere is fun and approachable; elements of old and new are everywhere. The lower level custom bar, with its butcher block counter and restored light fixtures, is not only a thing of beauty, but an ideal place to sample a selection of micro-brewed beers from Wisconsin. A collage of vintage doors lend a real sense of history to the space and a juxtaposition against the modern concrete and steel beams. The upper level has a Chef’s Bar featuring an open kitchen concept that promotes interaction between guests and chefs and supports the philosophy of transparent food preparation. A second dining room features opaque glass panel doors that can be closed for private parties. Thrive’s outdoor patio, once a loading dock, is the ideal place to meet for a refreshing summertime drink and to dine al fresco. The warm weather also brings a wealth of fresh ingredients. Try the wild Gulf shrimp on toasted French bread with a tomato relish, braised kale chips and kalamata olives. Community minded and involved in many events, the chefs take great pride in contributing to area fundraisers. Thrive Foodery is a testament to the efforts of two chefs with a vision to renovate a historic building and a passion to create fantastic food with local fl
