Clarke goes cluck, Canadian cuisine and zombie pizza
Each week on This Bites , dining critic Ann Christenson from Milwaukee Magazine and Radio Milwaukee’s resident foodie Tarik Moody dig into the city’s culinary and restaurant culture to help you find new spots, old favorites and the best ingestibles around Milwaukee.
Like most people, the team here at This Bites doesn’t necessarily need to know how the sausage is made. But when a solid sausage-maker like Clarke Street Sausage Co. moves into the Radio Milwaukee neighborhood, we want all the info we can get.
If you’re a regular at local farmer’s markets, you’ve probably seen co-owners Lucas McDonald and Vivian Sotolongo selling under the Clarke Street name. When they officially take over the former Soup Brothers space at 209 W. Florida St., it’ll be as Hen’s Deli (“Hen” being a nod to their kids: Hadassah, Eva and Noah).
Ann and I talk about all the good stuff they’ll bring to Walker’s Point when they open in 2023, as well as the usual spin around Milwaukee’s food world:
- Boo-Boo’s Sandwich Shop closed its doors in Walker’s Point shortly after its sibling business Soup Brothers did the same, although it’s looking for a new home.
- Poutine Stop will fill a massive fries-and-cheese-and-gravy hole in Milwaukee when it opens Nov. 1 at Paper Table downtown.
- A new cocktail lounge/cafécalled Gülden Room opened in the Dubbel Dutch Hotel downtown.
- And in proud Halloween fashion, Trouble and Sons Pizzeria pulled a zombie and is back from the dead in Whitefish Bay.
