No need to get out your passport in order to experience world-inspired cuisine. Madison's eclectic blend of restaurants offers seemingly endless dining opportunities.
First stop: Europe. Try Brocach Irish Pub--in their newest location on Monroe Street--for a traditional Irish neighborhood feel and specialty menus. A trip to Essen Haus just may make you feel as though you've stepped back in time into a German Beer Hall, complete with authentic food and live music. Liliana's and The Bayou offer New Orleans flavors and French Quarter decor, while Paisan's and Porta Bella offer Italian flavor in classic, homemade meals. And Madison meets the Mediterranean in eclectic eateries including Banzo, Mediterranean Hookah Lounge & Cafe, and A Pig in a Fur Coat.
If more "calor" is what you're looking for, savor the South American flavors of Eldorado Grill and Tex Tubb's Taco Palace, two don't-miss dining destinations.
End your world tour with a sampling of Asia at Lao Laan-Xang, Madison's first authentic Laotion restaurant, or Sa-Bai Thong, located on Madison's west side. With three continents under your belt, even the biggest appetite will definitely be filled.
