    • Farmers Wife, 6533 W. Mitchell Street, West Allis, WI 53214
    There’s an interesting restaurant that opened fairly recently called The Farmers Wife. Located at 6533 W. Mitchell Street, it is described as having “sustainably sourced American comfort food classics” and being a sort of “Sunday dinner” restaurant. Robin, one of the owners, says that they have a policy of Wisconsin made/Wisconsin grown as much as possible for their ingredients.

    Exploring Cuisines will visit The Farmer’s Wife on Tuesday, April 18. We will meet at the restaurant at 6:30. Some of their menu items include an Oyster Mushroom Po-Boy ($10), Pot Roast ($14), Chicken Pot Pie ($12) and Pear Salad ($11). You can check out the rest of the menu at http://www.thefarmerswife66.com.

    If you would like to join us please call Cindy at (414)336-8695 by Monday April 17 so I can make reservations.
