This Bites: Schooling the next wave of Milwaukee restaurateurs

640 440

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.”

Talent is something the Milwaukee food scene has never been short on. But talent doesn’t guarantee success. A new restaurant we talk about this week seeks to address that with a win-win concept: a teaching kitchen where local food entrepreneurs get valuable training and guidance, and customers get a great meal prepared by skilled hands.

Listen to learn more about Turning Tables Tavern & Eatery located in Historic Turner Hall, as well as these odds and ends from our city’s culinary community:

  • Phat Dumpling pop-up at Uncle Wolfie’s Breakfast Tavern. This dine-in-only event goes down today (Aug. 5) from 5-8 p.m.
  • New Vietnamese restaurant on the South Side. The owners of Pho Saigon in West Allis plan to open BaoBao Cuisine on South 27th Street.
  • Dino’s Riverwest closes permanently. The location at 808 E. Chambers St. has always had an off-and-on history. A series of bad breaks has forced the doors closed again.
