BUFFALONIANS may like their mustard bright yellow, hot and cheap.
But in Milwaukee, the Wilson Street Grill offers mustards of various hues and flavors -- and they're not cheap.
There's Black Truffle Mustard, which retails for $16 for seven ounces.
A little less pricey but still in the realm of haute cuisine is Champs' Mustard with Fennel -- recommended for sausages, potatoes and most vegetables -- and costing $8.25 for seven ounces.
Arran Whole Seed Herb Mustard with Glengoyne (as in Glengoyne Single Malt Scotch), which the restaurant recommends by itself on crackers, is $7 for seven ounces.
And there's Noyo Reserve Orange Espresso Mustard, suggested as a topping for cheesecake or ice cream. It costs $6.25 for eight ounces.

The Association of Collegiate Licensing Administrators, which tracks sales of merchandise with the names of U.S. colleges and universities, surveyed manufacturers and found that Michigan was the biggest seller of sweat shirts, baseball caps and jackets in the first three months of the year.
Notre Dame was second, followed by Kentucky, North Carolina and Florida.
