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.
This week on This Bites, we talked about Braise’s ‘Leaders in Local Food’ series; the 2nd DanDan pop-up; Tyranena & Clockshadow Fight or Flight at Goodkind; and new restaurant openings including Rare Steakhouse, Hello Falafel and Cloud Red in Shorewood.
Braise recently launched a new series titled ‘Leaders in Local Food.’ During the months of May, June & July, Braise will host three Midwest chefs. Each chef will prepare a 4-course meal. After the meal, there will be a discussion on local food systems with the visiting chef and the chefs of Braise.
Here is the schedule:

THURSDAY, JUNE 23RD: MATT CHAMBAS, WICKMAN HOUSE, ELLISON BAY, WI

The highly anticipated restaurant DanDan hasn’t opened its doors yet. However, they have been hosting a series of Pop-up dinners. The next pop-up will be at Gypsy Taco at Boone & Crockett on June 13. There will be six surprise menu options and two signature cocktails.
The final event will be a beer and cheese pairing at Goodkind called Tyranena & Clockshadow Fight or Flight. The event will be held from May 25 to May 29.
