2 New Restaurants Open in Walker’s Point This Week

We’ve got the scoop on Bowls and Laughing Taco, plus more dining news.

Bowls and tacos ‒ they’re the focus of this week’s This Bites on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, featuring Tarik Moody and me. A couple of soft openings took place in Walker’s Point this week:

Bowls Restaurant (207 Freshwater Way)  ‒ co-owned by The National’s Nell Benton ‒ is putting a lot of healthy ingredients in, well, bowls. It opens to the public on Monday, June 5. The bowls can be grain-based (like the North African bowl, with quinoa, golden raisins, tomatoes, pickled peppers, pistachios and feta), smoothie or oatmeal-based (apple pie, berry acai) or greens-based (kale & beet, chopped raw salad), $7-$12. Hours: Mon-Sat 7:30 a.m.-7 p.m.

The new Laughing Taco (1033 S. First St.) also opened this week, without social media announcement fanfare.
