Every week on It bitesfood critic Ann Christenson of Milwaukee Magazine and Tarik Moody, Radio Milwaukee’s resident foodie, delves into the city’s culinary and dining culture to help you find new spots, old favorites and the best edibles around Milwaukee.
The catering activity is rotating. One place closes, another opens. But some places seem to attract special attention because they are so unique. We start this week’s episode by talking about one of those places – perhaps the most prominent in town, right at the top of Brewers Hill.
It’s a place where you can admire the skyline with all that was served. Roots was there from 2004 to 2012 and then Wolf Peach took over until a somewhat contentious closing in 2018, followed by View MKE and its pandemic-laden tenure that ended in late 2020.
Now the location will become Greek after its sale to Chicago restaurant group Avlí. Ann and I discuss plans to bring Modern Mediterranean to Milwaukee, along with some other news:
- the nomad The winter farmers market is on the move againthis time moving from the Deer District to the old Lutheran Church on Capitol Drive.
- Discourse Coffee is making even more noise downtown by teaming up with Egg & Flour to a pop-up breakfast next Sunday, October 23.
- Speaking of which, someone has to open a Japanese breakfast place in Milwaukee. OK, not a news. Just a plea from me.
That’s all for begging. But I will very kindly ask you to listen to the episode below and then subscribe, like, review and share wherever you get your podcasts. Thanks.
