This Bites: Peanut Butter & Jelly Deli is Now Open

A shop entirely dedicated to the wonders of the PB&J

Tarik Moody and I lead off this week’s installment of This Bites (Fridays, 8 a.m., on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee) with the new Peanut Butter & Jelly Deli in West Allis (6125 W. Greenfield). If you love PB&J sandwiches, this place promises to make all your dreams come true. It offers various nut butters ground on-site, and an impressive number of different jams, jellies and fruit butters.

As a prelude of sorts to Downtown Dining Week, which takes place in June, some 30 Downtown businesses (from Miller Time Pub & Grill to Bacchus) are making happy hour particularly enticing for Taste & Toast, which offers appetizers, small plates and drink deals this week (March 5-9, Monday-Friday, 4-7 p.m.). Note that not all of the restaurants in the mix are open on Mondays or before 5 p.m. Check the Milwaukee Downtown website for menu info as well.

And last but not least, in Milwaukee Magazine’s March issue, I write about a cafe worth driving to East Troy for. It’s called 2894 On Main and is helmed by Jonna Froelich, the former chef from I.d. at the Delafield Hotel
