Pizza Chef Jonathan Elsner makes a confit potato pizza in their wood-fired oven at The Grange Community Kitchen in Hamburg.




Potatoes on pizza sounds rather daft until the confit fingerling pizza ($17) arrives. Poaching taters in fat makes them dense, and they soak up flavors. So when they’re sliced thin and strewn across chile cream with fat petals of roasted onions and smoked caciocovallo cheese, then fired in an 800-degree oven, potatoes gain quite a bit of character.

Adrian’s Restaurant & Bar, which has been closed since last summer, is being converted into another City Pork, which is slated to open in May.

City Pork owner Stephen Hightower, who signed the paperwork for the 6,870-square-foot space earlier this morning, will lease the building from Juban’s Restaurant Group, which “pressed pause” on Adrian’s nearly one year ago amid the coronavirus pandemic.

We’ve been waiting for this news item since we first learned that alcohol would be served in Star Wars Galaxy’s edge. While there’s no need for alcoholic beverage sales all over Disneyland the way it’s available at California Adventure or Downtown Disney, many guests would like a glass of wine or a beer when sitting down to a nice (and very expensive) meal at Blue Bayou.

APPLETON, Wis. (WBAY) – Wisconsin’s cocktails to-go law has now gone into effect.

Prior to Sunday, bars and restaurants could sell all of the ingredients needed for a craft cocktail to someone ordering takeout — as long as the drink wasn’t mixed. Those same establishments can now sell those cocktails mixed as long as they’re sealed.

“It’s another source of income

Openings & Announcements 

James Anderson, the owner of Ray Ray’s Hog Pit and a James Beard nominee, is ready to unveil his first sit-down restaurant, Ray Ray’s Meat + Three.
