New York style bagels, noshes and opening a restaurant in Milwaukee
There’s nothing quite like a freshly baked bagel. The exterior is glossy and caramelized with a distinctive crispness and a soft, chewy interior that has a mellow, yet complex flavor. Top that off with cream cheese and house-cured lox and you’ve got one helluva breakfast, lunch or snack.
Of course, that’s just a modicum of what you’ll find at Allie Boy’s Bagelry & Luncheonette, one of the newest spots in Milwaukee to get an amazing bagel... and enjoy a great line-up of elevated deli-inspired noshes.
This week on FoodCrush, we chat with Staci Lopez and Ben Nerenhausen, owners of Allie Boy’s about their experiences opening a new restaurant even during the most challenging of times. Over the course of our conversation, we learn more about this accomplished couple, who’ve worked in restaurants across the U.S., glean insights into the vision for Allie Boy’s, the challenges the business has faced, and the bright future they hope to build in their new Milwaukee home.
