On this week’s edition of This Bites, we’re talking about spots to take your mom on Mother’s Day, a culinary market at the Sherman Phoenix and details about the government’s restaurant and bar grant program. And we close the episode with two Milwaukee businesses expanding into new neighborhoods — Pete’s Pops and Crafty Cow.
Mother’s Day is May 9, and it is time to think about where you should treat your mom for brunch or dinner. The Journal Sentinel has a good round-up of restaurants including spots like Bacchus, Blue’s Egg, and Cavas. At Cavas, you can either dine-in or take out Paella with pork, chicken, chorizo, mussels and shrimp. The dish also comes with salad, sparkling wine and a flower. Orders and reservations are accepted by May 7, and you can pay over the phone at (414) 930-9088.
The vegan restaurant Twisted Plants is also offering something special for Mother’s Day. For $25, you can get Crispy fried chik’n, Mac N Cheeze, sweet potatoes, cornbread dressing, greens and a surprise dessert.
New grant program
Beginning on May 3, restaurants and bars can apply for grants from $28 billion Restaurant Revitalization Fund. Priority will be given for the first 21 days of the application process to businesses that are at least 51% owned by women, veterans and “socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.”
You can learn more about the grant via Independent Restaurant Coalition’s website.
Finally, on May 2, a culinary market will take place at Sherman Phoenix from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
