Stick with Sticky Fingers

Stick with Sticky Fingers

As a baker myself, I make a point to try all the local bakeries. I heard from several people that a new bakery was opening in Kaukauna, and as soon as they posted their menu, I couldn’t wait to try it. Right in the heart of downtown Kaukauna, Sticky Fingers opened in...

Do Not Attempt to Dodge this Caribbean Taste

Do Not Attempt to Dodge this Caribbean Taste

Tuesday. What is there to do on a Tuesday? Hardly anything, ever, really. Tuesday falls too early in the week and yet is so far removed from the weekend. Sometimes it is just another Monday masquerading as a Tuesday. 313 Dodge might just be what you are looking for....

Wisconsin Staples at Gabe’s Wisconsin Kitchen and Tavern

Wisconsin Staples at Gabe’s Wisconsin Kitchen and Tavern

As I’m getting used to living in Wisconsin, I’m discovering some of the Wisconsin staples when it comes to food and spirits. I knew about Spotted Cow and cheese curds before I moved to Wisconsin, but that was about it. Fortunately, Gabe’s Wisconsin Kitchen and Tavern...

Bushels of Fun at Bauer’s Apple Shed

As soon as the leaves begin to change, even ever so slightly, so does my weekly menu. When the shades of green turn to red and orange, my refrigerator, once full of peaches, quickly becomes home to all things apple. Taking a trip to a local apple orchard is my...

Faris Popcorn is Poppin’

Faris Popcorn is Poppin’

When I previously lived in Illinois, I became familiar with the popcorn chain “Garrett Popcorn.” One of my favorites mixes was their Garrett Mix, their world famous cheddar and caramel corn mix. When I moved to Wisconsin, I wasn’t sure if I would find a popcorn...

A Hidden Gem on Meade Street

Meade St Bistro is a newer restaurant to the Fox Valley. You’ll find them on the corner of Northland Ave and Meade St in Appleton. They have a wide array of food, to satisfy any craving. Steak, seafood, salads, burgers you name it!

Meade Street Bistro’s Offerings

The menu is divided up by ‘biggies’, ‘smalls’, ‘greens’, ‘between bread’, and ‘it’s a pizza’. On Fridays they also have fish fry specials. (This is Wisconsin after all!) I ordered from the ‘biggies’, a plate of pan seared scallops. It also came with a side of corn risotto cake, and some steamed veggies.
Everything was cooked in a herb garlic butter, and white wine sauce. The scallops were cooked to perfection, and the risotto was AMAZING. I am not always a huge fan of seafood, but some reason I had a craving for scallops. I can’t think of many places that make risotto in our area, but Meade St Bistro did a fabulous job. The steamed carrots, and broccoli I got with my dish were also perfect. Thinking about my food as I write this is making my mouth water. I can’t wait to order from here again!
Price wise it was a bit on the higher side, but with the quality of food you are getting it is DEFINITELY worth it. It is a bistro after all. Of course the entree I went ahead and ordered was more expensive, but they do have other options that are more friendly to your wallet.
Next time I want to try their pulled pork sandwich. I am looking forward to going back there post-Covid, and dine in to try one of their many cocktails. They are delivering right now through EatStreet, and DoorDash. I was bummed I missed out on preordering a hot chocolate bomb! I’ll have to be faster next time.
