Who's Who at the Walkers Point Food Crawl

With the Walkers Point Food Crawl just around the corner (Saturday, May 30), we thought it'd be great to profile a few of our awesome partners for this event.

Braise​ - James Beard Nominated Chef David Swanson takes farm to table seriously, aiming to serve up small dishes that incorporate locally sourced food from as close as Braise's own rooftop garden.  Last year, he served a grilled chorizo sope that I paired with a Pearl St. pale ale for a delicious bite along my route.

Chez Jacques​ - Owner Jacques Chaumet boasts a menu that exhibits all the true flavors of France, stemming from passed down family recipes and specialties of his classically trained French chef.  Some of my personal favorites are the french onion soup and daily quiche specials.

Wayward Kitchen Co.​ is a small plate restaurant with a diverse menu of dishes that are sure to please.  Wayward was my first stop on the crawl last year and I ordered a watermelon mojito (delicious!), the pork belly toastada, and eggplant involtini.

Blue Jacket offers up more than just meets the eye.  In addition to it's beautiful decor and calming ambiance, a seasonal menu with a focus on Midwest comfort food has people coming back for more. Last year they hosted the bloody mary kickoff to the crawl and people werelined up out the door"

Screaming Tuna Sushi & Asian Bistro - Newcomer to the crawl, Screaming Tuna is a casual Asian-fusion bistro offering some of the best views of the city. I've personally been here for dinner and their sushi knocks it out of the park, especially when coupled with their daily drink specials.

Clock Shadow Creamery​ - One of my favorites on the list, Clock Shadow Creamery is a must when talking about Milwaukee food.  Last year for the crawl, the local creamery offered up pretzels and cheese among other cheese-tastic dishes to satisfy hunger crawl-goers.

 Meraki - Another new restaurant on the crawl, Meraki is owned by Chef Chad Meier and his wife Malissa. The restaurant specializes in modern, shareable plates, and features an open kitchen so diners can get in on the action. It earned three (3) stars in a recent review by Journal Sentinel critic, Carol Deptolla.
