Bay View's Mistral returns and a Cereal Bar is coming to Milwaukee

On this week’s edition of This Bites, we talked about the return of the Bay View restaurant Mistral, a cereal bar coming to Walnut Hill, Makk'n'Cheese expanding to the East Side, a new Kosher deli and an online Asian and Hispanic market expanding to Milwaukee.

Probably one of Milwaukee's best date night restaurants is back. Bay View's Mistral, located right next to the Avalon Theater, has reopened their doors for service. They also released a new menu featuring items like lamb meatballs, Adriatic prawns, steak and frites and olive oil semolina cake.

Next, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on a cereal bar called Cloud 9 coming to the Walnut Hill neighborhood. According to the story, the menu will include chicken and waffles, pancakes, eggs and bacon, as well cereal-inspired shakes.

And if corned beef is your thing, there is a new Kosher deli located inside the Peltz Center for Jewish Life at Crown Court in Mequon. Deli on Crown will serve dishes like potato knish, cabbage rolls, corned beef sandwiches. It will also feature a lunch special consisting of corned beef, pastrami and salami with coleslaw and Russian dressing on a choice of bread. The deli is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays to Thursdays.

Plus, Milwaukee's Makk'n'Cheese announced they will be opening another store on the East side in the space where Good Land Wings was located. They currently have a store in Bay View. Menu items include Cajun Lobster Butter mac & cheese and a mac & cheese topped with Hot Cheetos.

Finally, there is new online grocery delivery service that specializes in Asian and Hispanic products that just hit the Milwaukee market called Weee! (yeah, that is the name). According to the press release, Weee! sources and delivers high-quality and authentic products at the peak of freshness across 15 cities in the U.S. and brings access to anything from fresh produce, to traditional comfort foods, to the newest snack trend. This includes items that are often difficult to find in the U.S., like fresh Pacific black cod from Half Moon Bay, Kyoho grapes and air-flown Hokkaido uni.
