Culinary inspiration that warms the soul
Madison is where food scientists, producers, brewers, distillers, makers, and chefs intersect to create culinary stories incredible, inclusive, ownable and sustainable. There’s the chef who started a side hustle raising pigs prized for their flavor. A farm family who worked with UW-Madison to repropagate an heirloom corn variety in their quest to create a one-of-a-kind bourbon. A couple who wanted to elevate the traditional supper club idea and ended up on New York Times' 2022 America's Best Restaurants.
Madison's culinary scene is decorated. We're talking 42 James Beard award honors, including 4 Best Chef: Midwest. And when it comes to farmer's markets, ours is the biggest deal. Literally. We're home to the largest producer-only farmer's market in the country. A place where you can meet the farmer who grew your food and the chef who will prepare it hours before your reservation.
No matter how many times you've tried Madison's food, there's always something new, with rotating menus and specials that draw from what's in season. It's time to find your new favorite restaurant in Madison.
