Splurge on these Milwaukee takeout meals this Valentine's Day weekend
On this week's episode, we're rounding up some of the best places to get some takeout this Valentine's Day weekend, if you're looking to treat that special someone in your life (or are looking for things to do if you're single and just want to treat yourself). We also have news to report about Polonez Polish Restaurant, the details about Maxie's week-long Mardi Gras celebration, and the scoop on a closing at the Milwaukee Public Market.
There are plenty of restaurants in town that are offering takeout Valentine's Day meals. Over at Milwaukee Magazine, Ann reports that Sanford is offering an especially decadent four-course meal with seared scallops “Rockefeller," curried pumpkin bisque, striploin dusted with mushrooms, a side of maple mascarpone polenta and a chocolate dried-cherry espresso cake with cherry preserves and hot fudge.
Ardent's reheat at home meal is similarly decadent: It'll feature caviar, a New York strips steak, King crab and sunchoke porridge, a celeriac and black-truffle tart and flourless chocolate cake, in addition to five gourmet snacks including foie-gras bon bons. Odd Duck's "Valentine's Day date in a box," meanwhile, includes lobster thermidor and dark-chocolate orange truffles. It looks like those boxes are now sold out, but the restaurant has plenty of other tempting dishes on its menu this weekend, too.
If those meals don't sound special enough, Ann also shares three suggestions for sweet treats you can order.
Polonez Polish Restaurant is for sale
Milwaukee County's only Polish restaurant is for sale, owner Peter Burzynski confirmed on Facebook. However Polonez (4016 S. Packard Ave.), a 38-year-old St. Francis institution is not closed. It will remain open until it finds a buyer, Burzynski says.
Hear all the details on that and much, much more on this week's episode below.
