Egg & Flour prepares for two creative collaborations this month

640 480

Each week on Radio Milwaukee, Milwaukee Magazine dining critic Ann Christenson and 88Nine’s resident foodie Tarik Moody discuss Milwaukee’s culinary and restaurant culture on This Bites.

On this week’s episode, we’re talking about a couple collaborations from Egg & Flour. We’re also talking about Downtown Dining Week and sharing some news about Big Daddy’s BBQ and Soul Food.

Egg & Flour is doing a few collaborations, one of which will happen on May 15. It’s a collaboration with Flour Girl & Flame, and they’re calling it Egg & Flour Girl (pretty clever). They’ve be making some cool pizzas, and the proceeds will benefit Tandem’s community meals program, which has provided over 400 meals a day to people in needs.

The pizzas include a mac and cheese ‘za, a pepperoni pizza with fresh mozzarella, pickled peppers and hot honey and a seasonal vegetable pizza.

The other collaboration Egg & Flour is doing is in honor of Asian American Heritage Month, and it pairs them with Meat on the Street. This one takes place on May 9, and will feature some special kabobs, a traditional Filipino street favorite.

Downtown Dining Week is back

In June, Downtown Dining Week will return June 3-13. We don’t have the menus yet, but we know which restaurants will be participating.

There will be more than 20 of them, including Benihana, Blue Bat Kitchen & Tequilaria, Café at the Pfister, The Capital Grille, Flannery’s, The Knick, The Loaded Slate, Mader’s German Restaurant, Mason Street Grill, Oak Barrel Public House, Onesto, Proof Pizza, Rodizio Grill, Smoke Shack, SportClub, Third Coast Provisions, Third Street Tavern, Uncle Buck’s, Vagabond, Ward’s House of Prime and Who’s on Third.

There will be some dine-in options, as more people are out and about and looking to dine out after getting vaccinated.

We can’t stress this enough: Diners should tip on the full price of the meal. Yes, they’re getting a discount, but they should still be considerate of their servers.

Big Daddy’s BBQ plans a Franklin spot

Big Daddy’s BBQ and Soul Food is opening a new location in Franklin this summer. The location will open on on Lovers Lane at the Shops of Wyndham Village, near the Target and Pick n’ Save.

We’re big fans of the restaurant’s current location on Humboldt, which has some fantastic pork, chicken and rib tips. Franklin is in for a treat.

Hear us talk about it all on this week’s episode below.
