History

Britton Unkefer purchased Digger’s, a longtime landmark of Fish Creek, in March of 2008. Britton knew the Door County restaurant from his younger years living on Washington island. The restaurant was his way of fulfilling the dream of returning to Door County to raise a family. Yet before settling in Fish Creek, he traveled the world to perfect the craft.

Britton started his culinary career at his family’s restaurant, Nelsen’s Hall, on Washington Island at 13 years old. He then attended New England Culinary Institute in Essex, Vermont before moving west to serve as head baker to Wolfgang Puck at the acclaimed Postrio in San Francisco. It was here that he handled his first wood-fired oven. As executive chef at the Columbia Gorge Hotel in Hood River, Oregon, he learned to implement local, seasonal products into the menu. Returning to Wisconsin, he served as Chef de Cuisine at the four-diamond Christies in Appleton before opening the restaurant at the Horseshoe Bay Golf Club as Executive Chef. After working at the club Britton traveled to Lucerne, Switzerland to further his studies and received training in European Regional Cuisine. He then moved to Milwaukee serving as executive chef and general manager at Sticks and Stones in Brookfield before becoming Corporate Executive Chef for Water Street Brewery Restaurant Group.

 

The Family

Britton is not only happy to call Door County home, but also glad to raise a family in the Door County community. He has two boys, Levi and Ivo who are active in soccer, art, and school. When not in front of the wood-fire, Britton is catching up on the latest European football scores, coaching soccer for his boys, or enjoying the beauty of Door County.
