Dinner: Brickhouse BBQ

From the site: Every day we work tirelessly to bring you the best in homestyle BBQ cuisine. Relax in our spacious dining facilities and take in the mouthwatering aromas floating in from the kitchen. Explore our extensive list of forty craft beers—all on tap. Enjoy the sights of Madison’s downtown from our rooftop patio. And don’t forget to try out some of the best BBQ in Madison.

From WiLS Staff (Lisa): My friends rave about the BBQ here, but the Mac & Cheese/pasta options on the back of the menu are amazing too! I definitely recommend the Chipotle Mac & Cheese (if you’re not a fan of BBQ, ask for it without the pulled pork). I always enjoy drinking a beer from the rooftop with a view of the Capitol!

Dinner: Dotty Dumping's Dowry

From the site: “In 1969, Jeff Stanley opened an eclectic gift shop in Des Moines, Iowa.  He called it Dotty Dumpling’s Dowry.  After only a few years in operation his interest turned from jewelry and clothing to hamburgers. In 1975 Stanley moved to Madison and open the first Dotty Dumpling’s Dowry”….and the rest is history!

 

From WiLS Staff (Stef):  Can’t beat Dotty’s for burgers, fries, and shakes.  They have unique and delicious combinations of toppings (My fav is the “alumni” -- cheddar and their own homemade steak sauce) and veggie, chicken, and turkey burgers for the non-beef eaters.

Dotty Dumpling's Dowry 317 N Frances St., Madison, WI 53703

Dinner: Fresco

From the site:  Located on the rooftop of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Fresco is a modern dining space boasting panoramic views of the city. Enjoy exceptional views of Madison while sipping cocktails and enjoying artfully prepared food.

 

From WiLS staff (Andi):  The view is amazing and the food is fantastic.  Pricier (and the inside space is a little echo-y) but worth it!  And, if you get there by 5:00, the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, upon which this restaurant sits, is worth a visit.

Dinner: Ian's Pizza

From WiLS Staff (Bruce):  Full pies or by the slice, you’ll find some creative toppings offered here.  Their Mac and Cheese pizza is a favorite.

Dinner: Kabul Restaurant

From WiLS Staff (Sara): Guaranteed to please the palates of vegetarians and carnivores, Kabul is a Madison institution not to be missed  My favorite comfort food is Kabul’s hummus with a side of Mashawa (Afghani-style soup made with chick peas, kidney beans, split peas and meats, served with a dollop of yogurt mint sauce).

Dinner: Porta Bella

From the site: Established in 1968, Porta Bella is known for its pasta, homemade Italian dinners, pizzas, steaks and seafood. Recipes that came from Madison's Italian Greenbush are still offered today in addition to new regional Italian dishes found during our travels to Italy.

 

From WiLS Staff (Emily): Old-school Italian red sauce joint with a great wine bar in the basement. Really good thin-crust pizza -- the vegetarian pizza, with pesto instead of tomato sauce, is my favorite.

Dinner: Restaurant Muramoto

Dinner: The Old Fashioned

From the site:  What about your first fish fry? We think of ours often. Imagine sitting around a northwoods campfire roasting marshmallows with friends. We completely understand.  We all make our homes here, and we grew up on the traditions of Friday fish fry, Saturday prime rib, and Sunday wood-fired chicken. We invite you to stop into our home-away-from-home and sample our selection of Wisconsin beers, wines, spirits, and specialty drinks. And of course to try our namesake: the classic, hand-muddled Old Fashioned.

 

From WiLS Staff (All):  This instantly became a go-to downtown restaurant after it opened.  It’s the perfect mix of casual and quality.
