The Old Fashioned, Madison WI

Celebrating the culinary traditions of Wisconsin. And doing it well. The Old Fashioned is all about good Wisconsin food. Not just brats, cheese and beer. Don't get me wrong, there's fried cheese curds on the menu (and they are amazing) but so are lots of other local specialties. Who knew that in Wisconsin a fried egg is a burger topping? And who knew it tasted so good???

It gets pretty crowded, especially on weekends. But it's worth the wait. Try one of their takes on the Old Fashioned cocktail. There are a few variations to choose from and it seems they're coming up with new ones all the time. For brunch, I'd highly recommend the Wisconsin Benedict, as seen below. It is offered with sauteed market veggies instead of the bratwurst patty for those of you who don't love sausage patties as much as I do.

  1. You had me at "cheese curds"! In Wisconsin there is a creamery that the Governor of Wisconsin proclaimed the "Cheese Curd Capital of Wisconsin". They have a web site and sell fresh, squeaky cheese curds and also breaded cheese curds! Their milk is rBST free too! Check out their website for all the things you can do with cheese curds.

Thanks for visiting Heartland. I love hearing from each and every one of you!
