Washington Heights’ New French Restaurant

Maison Restaurant on Vliet Street sets its grand opening date (May 26), plus a special event at Supper and some last-minute gift suggestions for Mother’s Day.

Tarik says sometimes you want to do something “unique” for your mom. Yep, that’s a sound bite from this week’s edition of This Bites, Mother’s Day edition.

But Tarik Moody and I don’t just offer a few last-minute suggestions for gifts on our Friday 8 a.m. food segment (on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee). We also talk about Maison, the French restaurant opening in the former Meritage in Washington Heights later this month, and a food event that benefits SHARP Literacy.

Also, we offer a glimpse at the six-course cheese and rosé dinner at Supper on June 7. Get your tickets now.

And last but not least, Tarik talks about one of his dopest (that’s a word, I swear) food topics – dim sum. His travels next week will take him to Philly and perhaps repeated visits to a new dim sum joint.
