Can I really go to Madison and not eat at Himal Chuli?
Can I really go to Madison and not eat at Himal Chuli?

Where should I eat in Madison?

Although it’s not the sand-in-my-butt-crack vacation I really desire right now, I’m going to Madison for a change of scenery. In the past, a trip to Madtown automatically meant a meal at Himal Chuli, a great Nepali restaurant on State Street, but this time, I’m going to try someplace new.

Any suggestions? I am considering the Caribbean-flavored Jamerica on Williamson Street or possibly the Old Fashioned on Pickney.

Actually, I have been to the Old Fashioned once before with OnMilwaukee.com coworkers including publisher (and my amigo) Andy Tarnoff who ordered a burger topped with bacon, fried onions and a soft-cooked egg. After a week of caution-to-the-wind holiday horking, I don’t think I’m game for this much decadence on a bun, but I also remember the folks at the Old Fashioned making a hell of an old school cocktail.

Any other Madison restaurant suggestions?

Jollybob's is over-priced mediocre tripe, go to Jamerica, much more authentic and realistically priced. Try a Plaza burger, 319 North Henry Street, just off State.

Lazy Janes on Willy Street across from the co-op if having breakfast or lunch....I recently ate at Graze on the square (sophisticated Madison dining) which was yummy, and I have heard only excellent reviews of Underground Kitchen which just opened on East Mifflin.....happy dining.....B.

The Weary Traveler on Williamson St deserves consideration... diverse menu with a great beer selection.

If you are on the eastside and near Olbrich, you have to go Crema Cafe. Breakfast/lunch spot. Super awesome food and atmosphere looking over Lake Monona. The chef/owner used to work in Milwaukee at Sanford, Bartolottas and I think a place called Hi Hat? We are lucky to have him in our hood. Skip Mexican joints in Madtown too, Southside Milwaukee blows everything away. Merchant is a neat, new place near the Capital.
