It’s time to think spring, Milwaukee. It may be soul-crushingly cold outside now, but May—and Downtown Dining Week, which returns May 30-June 6—is on the horizon. Need a taste of spring today? Then be sure to check out the precursor to Downtown Dining Week, Taste & Toast, which begins this very afternoon.

From now through Friday, March 1, a total of 24 Downtown Milwaukee restaurants will feature “specially priced small plates, appetizers, and one-of-a-kind beverages” from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. What are those 24 downtown Milwaukee restaurants? Glad you asked:
