MILWAUKEE- It's clean dining this week! Two very different spots doing things right in the kitchen.

Tenuta's Italian Restaurant. One block north of Oklahoma on Clement Avenue in Bay View. This cozy spot is right in the neighborhood. Owner Frank Tenuta tells us "it's casual. You come here for a date you can bring your family. It's one size fits all kind of place."

The fare, also easy to describe. "Great Italian, great wine," Tenuta says. He's been in business almost eight years and knows how to keep his kitchen clean. For that Tenuta's Italian Restaurant gets our first Blue Ribbon Award. "We're very particular on how we do things...being clean is our number one goal so obviously we've done a good job."

Over on 27th and Lincoln the grill is busy at Lincoln Gyros. Open just a month owner Javid Khatibi spent a year getting this "take out" spot ready. There's a lot to choose from on the menu. "Chicken shishkabob, gyro burgers and there is a lot more that you can try," Khatibi tells us.

He takes great pride in keeping things clean. "We did our best to stay clean and be able to keep the place as clean as we can." For that Lincoln Gyros gets our second Blue Ribbon award.
