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.

We have a special treat for you in this week’s edition of This Bites. We’re sitting down with Jason Alston, chef and owner of Heaven’s Table BBQ. The restaurant and catering company, currently at Crossroad’s Collective, is opening a new location on 55th and North Avenue. Alston says it has been a longtime dream of his to have a standalone brick and mortar restaurant, and he explains how the opportunity came about, as well as his plans to expand its menu and cater to vegetarians. Its current location will remain open at Crossroad’s Collective through the end of the year.

He also explains how he came up with a recipe for cauliflower burnt ends.

We’re also talking about a feature piece Ann wrote for Milwaukee Magazine called “Let Us Now Praise Milwaukee’s Favorite Restaurants.” She was inspired by everything we’ve gone through with COVID-19 and the disastrous impact the pandemic has on the restaurant industry. So many restaurants have had to pivot, and it’s become clear that they need our support more than ever. “The only thing that I regret is that I couldn’t mention more restaurants in the story,” Ann says. The article also features some great recipes.

We also discuss a new pop-up called Flour Girl and Flame. It’s a pizza pop-up today starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Story Hill Fire House. There will be a classic fresh mozzarella and basil pizza, and also one with pickled cherry peppers and pepperoni — an unbeatable combination — as well as hand pies. There will be live music to go along with those wood-fired pizzas. Some of the proceeds from the event will go to the Sherman Phoenix Rise Alliance.

Hear us talk about all that and more on this week’s episode below.
