Support these Black-owned businesses during Milwaukee Black Restaurant Week
On this week's edition of This Bites, we're talking about the cover story for this month's Milwaukee Magazine, which is all about pizza. We also have some news about two cool pop-ups to share.
But we kick things off talking about the return of Milwaukee Black Restaurant Week, which will run Monday, April 12, through Sunday, April 18. Created by BlankSpaceMKE, it's in its sixth year now.
You can see the list of participating restaurants below.
All things pizza
For the last year during the pandemic, people have been doing carryout. And that means that many of us have been eating more pizza than ever -- it's the perfect carryout food.
So Ann took a deep dive into the city's pizza scene, and came up with a list of the best pizza around town. "Some people don't realize what a great pizza town Milwaukee is," Ann says. We're known for a distinct, cracker-thin crust, but there are all kinds of pizza you can get here of course. Some new places are offering more of a chewy, buttery crust.
And of course there are places in town that do wood oven-fired pizzas.
She even created a pizza bracket for the article. Ann admits that a lot of readers' favorite pizza places didn't even make the list of 16. I try my best to get her to say which one is her favorite, and although she resists, she does give some hints about her personal favorites.
Hear us talk about it on this week's episode below.
