An English pub makes me want to drink tea with my pinky raised and talk like the late Queen Mum. I think there’s quite a bit of Milwaukee to the new Attebury’s Pub & Eatery, a recent recruit to the old Carleton Grange space in St. Francis (3807 S. Packard Ave., 414-294-3800). Wisconsin beer and cheese soup and beer mac n’ cheese are two menu choices. Others, more in the English vein: fish ’n chips (cod dipped in beer batter), shepherd’s pie, a pub Reuben, and a burger served with a side of pub sauce. Still others, in the eager-to-please category: wood-fired pizzas, oyster po’ boy, and Bloody Mary seafood pasta. Prices $9.25-$19.95. Food service hours: Tues-Thurs 4-10 p.m.; Fri-Sat 4-11 p.m.
A class in which to learn the keys to making great sauces? That’s worth the drive to West Bend. At Cafe Soeurette (111 N. Main St.), owner-chef Jodi Janisse will offer a demo – in this case, on sauces – and conclude it by serving her students lunch and wine. Intriguing, yes? Class: May 14, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. $40 per person. Call 262-338-2233 to reserve a spot.
