Each week on This Bites, dining critic Ann Christenson from Milwaukee Magazine and Radio Milwaukee’s resident foodie Tarik Moody dig into the city’s culinary and restaurant culture to help you find new spots, old favorites and the best ingestibles around Milwaukee.

As “Radio Milwaukee’s resident foodie,” I’ve enjoyed having a front-row seat to the culinary scene growing around our Walker’s Point studios. That included Ruta’s Fresh Indian Fare moving in just down the block, and now another former East Side eatery has announced plans to join the neighborhood.

Latin-Asian concept Dia Bom (Portuguese for “Good Day”) opened in January 2022 at Crossroads Collective, the Farwell Avenue food hall that gives aspiring restaurateurs a dry run of sorts before committing to their own brick-and-mortar location.

We start this episode of the podcast talking about the dishes we hope make the trip south, some of which are mentioned in Ann’s article over at Milwaukee Magazine. Then we make our usual trip around the city’s food news, including:

We hope you find this episode refreshing as always and invite you to subscribe, review and share wherever you listen to This Bites. Thanks.
