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.

If you’re a fan of Uncle Wolfie’s Breakfast Tavern (and how could you not be), you’ve gotta be excited to see everything they’ve been metaphorically cooking up in addition to the rise-and-shine dishes.

First, you’ve got The Wolf on Broadway — the downtown restaurant on the ground floor of the Kinn Guesthouse that is mere weeks from opening. For the purposes of this particular episode of the podcast, however, we’re more excited about the ramen pop-up happening at the original Uncle Wolfie’s in Brewers Hill.

Called Nite Wolf (you have to admire the thematic consistency), the temporary evening concept is the result of a team-up with Elijah Loebbaka, who has plated plenty around town at places like Morel, Third Coast Provisions and, yes, Uncle Wolfie’s. That’s where you’ll find him this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 3-4, from 5 to 9 p.m. as he helps serve a menu with items like cucumber salad, house-made dumplings and of course a selection of ramen dishes.

It’s walk-up only (first come, first served), so we highly recommend perusing the menu in advance here as you listen to the rest of our spin around Milwaukee’s culinary scene:

  • Wisconsin first Pan-Asia Supermarket will open in West Allis next year, taking over a portion of the former Kmart at 6900 W. Greenfield Ave.
  • The weekly Milwaukee Winter Farmers Market is back this Saturday at The Table, 5305 W. Capitol Dr.
  • Ann talked turkey with local food stylist Laurel Z, who provided a few tips to take the stress out of your Thanksgiving.
  • She also had a chat with the owners of Lush Popcorn about the growth that led them to their new location in Riverwest (that one’s only in the pages of Milwaukee Magazine).

This is the only place you’ll find This Bites every week as we keep a tight grip on the title of Milwaukee’s longest-running culinary podcast. Keep us going by reviewing and subscribing wherever you listen, and maybe share us with a foodie friend while you’re at it. Thanks.
