Each Friday at 8am on 88Nine, Milwaukee Magazine’s dining critic, Ann Christenson, and 88Nine foodie Tarik Moody discuss Milwaukee’s culinary and restaurant culture.
On this week’s show, we talked about some new happenings on the East Side including Glorioso’s upcoming expansion. We also talked about a new restaurant in Shorewood and couple of things for vegans in Milwaukee – a vegan pop-up and Ian’s Pizza new vegan pizzas.
Listen to the podcast below.
Some exciting things are happening on the East Side and on Brady Street. First, Glorioso’s is planning a major expansion that will include a cooking school, a demonstration kitchen, commercial kitchen, and more. The expansion will be located in their old space located at 1018 E. Brady St. The former Mimma’s on Brady will become Dorsia, which is a reference to the film “American Pycho.” Last week, it was reported that Trocadero is closing; however, it looks like a new restaurant concept will be going in the space. There are no details about what kind of restaurant it will be.
The owners of Colectivo will be opening a new restaurant in Shorewood called The Ruckus, which will be located at 4144 N. Oakland Ave. The restaurant will serve a variety of burgers, ice cream desserts and churros.
