Cafe Hollander to Bring Fresh New Dining Option to Hilldale Shopping Center as Part of Redevelopment

MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - May 16, 2014) - The Lowlands Group and Hilldale Shopping Center are pleased to announce that plans for a new Café Hollander to open in the first quarter of 2015 are underway. With seven restaurants in the Milwaukee area including two Café Hollander locations, this young, growing company is bringing its "grand café" concept to Hilldale.

Offering a European inspired culinary direction, Café Hollander will serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night dining as well as its highly popular weekend brunches. The restaurant specializes in Belgian beers with 30 on tap and over 100 bottled varieties. The Lowlands Group also partners with a 5th generation family brewery near the Belgian town of Gent to brew three of their own biers as well as a seasonal holiday bier each December. The Lowlands Brewing Co. biers are served exclusively at all Lowlands Group grand cafes.

The Hilldale Café Hollander will feature a unique blend of indoor and outdoor dining areas including a sidewalk patio, a spectacular rooftop deck and an interior courtyard with a retractable glass roof. Known for their European décor and atmosphere, the Lowlands Group uses European antiques, repurposed and salvaged building materials as well as locally salvaged items as part of the grand cafe design.

But the food and bier are the real stars at Café Hollander. Chef Wil Borgstrom strives to utilize local ingredients in his twist on European scratch cooking. "Our focus is on serving our customers real food -- scratch cooking with an emphasis on quality local or regional products whenever possible." COO Paul Pendleton said of Borgstrom's menu.

"We are thrilled to be bringing our values and our café to Madison" Pendleton continued. "We have been wanting to open one of our concepts here and think Hilldale is an ideal location."

WS Development, owner of Hilldale is in the midst of redeveloping the center with a plan that proposes to take the existing enclosed mall area between Metcalfe's and Macy's and create an open air streetscape. The plan will deliver outward facing storefronts along the existing streets in this area, and add an open-air retail connection through a pedestrian walkway to the west parking lot with additional storefronts. Café Hollander will be located on the west side of the property near Macy's, Morgan's shoes and the Farmer's Market. WS is creating a pedestrian walkway from Target to the Macy's entrance and Café Hollander for easier traffic flow and customer access.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
