Flourchild in Walker's Point specializes in unusual pizzas -- including the 'Clam Jam'
On this week's episode, we're talking about Ann's annual Chef's Roundtable, which is the cover story in this month's Milwaukee Magazine. We're also talking about a couple of dining events, including the first-ever Tosa Restaurant Week and Downtown Milwaukee's Taste & Toast.
But first, we've got some news to share about Flourchild, the pizza spot from the owners of Merriment Social and Third Coast Provisions. it's been doing pop-ups around the city, but now it's just about month away from opening its own location at (722 N. Milwaukee St.). Before then, though, executive chef/owner Andrew Miller will be opening the restaurant for carryout on Thursdays and Fridays this month.
The menu is inspired, featuring a variety of appetizers (including burrata toast and spicy crab rangoon spring rolls), and a bunch of sandwiches and salads. But what really stands out is the pizza selection. There are some really interesting ones, including a Crab Rangoon Delight (crab, wontons and pickled pepper cream cheese), one called Talk Curry to Me (it's a vegetable pizza with Thai curry sauce) and, most excitingly, one called the Clam Jam. It's covered with clams, white sauce, bacon and Yukon Gold potatoes. I love a great white-sauce pizza.
There are a couple of dining events we're excited about. One is the first ever Tosa Restaurant Week, which kicked off yesterday and will run through March 13. Each day restaurants will be offering special meals, including three-course dinners at a bargain price (don't forget to tip on the actual value of the meal, not the price).
