Where to do Easter brunch in Milwaukee this Sunday

Each Friday on Radio Milwaukee, Milwaukee Magazine’s dining critic, Ann Christenson, and 88Nine’s foodie Tarik Moody discuss Milwaukee’s culinary and restaurant culture on This Bites. This Bites is supported by Society Insurance.

This week, we're talking about the underdog that is the hot dog, the best places for Easter brunch this Sunday and new food you can try at Miller Park this season.

Best hot dogs in Milwaukee

Ann was feeling bad for the hot dog because it's always being overshadowed by the brat here. So, she wrote about where to find the best hot dogs in Milwaukee. There's a big difference between an Oscar Meyer wiener and the dogs from Martino's, Vanguard and Benji's Deli.

Easter brunch

Even if you're not celebrating Easter, these menus sound good. Here are our picks for the best Easter brunches in the Milwaukee area coming up this Sunday. Don't forget to book reservations for these spots.

The Trout House

In Palmyra, WI, The Trout House is a bit of a road trip, but worth it. It's at the Rushing Waters trout farm. Highlights from their Sunday buffet menu are: lemon dill salmon, smoked trout and spiral ham with honey mustard sauce.

Cafe Calatrava at the Milwaukee Art Museum 

Enjoy a brunch beneath the wings at Cafe Calatrava. Then, explore the exhibits after eating. Their menu will feature tangerine and sage glazed Maple Creek ham, Spanish-style fingerling potatoes, smoked paprika, and piquillo peppers and strawberry rhubarb French toast.

Merriment Social

Merriment Social is having an all-you-can eat buffet on Easter Sunday. They'll have breakfast sausage potstickers, a veggie frittata with spinach, oyster Mushrooms and fontina and lamb meatballs.

Miller Park's new menu

Brewers’ baseball is just around the corner. Opening day will take place onApril 2. And, Miller Park has a new food with pierogies, kale salad and fresh fruit on the menu. They all sound great. Except maybe the fruit, which could be dangerous when the Cubs are in town. Here's the full menu:
