Third Ward favorite Bavette la Boucherie is moving — and expanding

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 edition of This Bites, we’ve got some news about a new location for a favorite Third Ward restaurant, and also a popular ghost kitchen that is working on a brick and mortar location. We also talk about the food coverage in the November issue of Milwaukee Magazine — which includes a feature about a wine bar on wheels.

Bavette la Boucherie, which has been delighting diners in the Third Ward at 330 E. Menomonee St. for close for nine years, is planning to move, owner Karen Bell posted on Facebook. The new space will be just a few blocks away, in the former Swig (217 N. Broadway). The new space has a full service kitchen, which will let them expand their menu. But don’t worry: It’ll still be a butcher, too.

Ann reports that the shop should have a slightly expanded retail area, too. The new location should open sometime in 2022.

One of the city’s most interesting ghost kitchens is planning to expand to its own brick-and-mortar location. AsianRican Foods, “a cultural fusion restaurant specializing in Asian and Spanish spices to create savory and flavorful dishes,” is planning its own space. Currently the shop is operating out of O Yeah Chicken, 3322 W. Loomis Rd., in Greenfield.

Look at how tempting this menu is.

Also on this week’s episode, Ann previews her article about Soul Brew kombucha, who make a product so good that even people who aren’t even into kombucha might love it, and her review of the Washington Heights spot Charles E. Fromage. She also introduces us to an adorable West Allis wine bar on wheels.

Hear us talk about all that below.
