Staff Picks for Restaurants, Places and Events
Cathie reviews Heritage Tavern
With so much press and fanfare, we had a notion not to be keen on this farm to table new kid on the block. We were wrong—this may be our best pick for a nice night out. They transform basics like cod and duck to culinary excellence in an atmosphere that is modern and beautiful.

Grace describes her favorite place in Madison
The Arboretum would have to be my favorite spot. With its winding trails and numerous streams, you're never short a beautiful view in this wilderness within the city. The Arb is also a great place to workout; any day, rain or shine, ice or sleet, runners, bikers, and hikers dominate the pavement and paths.

Cora shares her favorite neighbrohood hangout
Gates and Brovi has the best casual dining just a step from the inn! Whether for a lemonade after work or a family dinner, it's my go to for a relaxed atmosphere and yummy dishes.

Anna talks about the Farmers' Market
The farmers' market is my favorite Madison event. There's lots of good local foods including Stella's hot cheesy bread from Stella's bakery.

Resha talks about some home cooked meals at Arbor House, and Taste of India
I'm pretty much a homebody and enjoy a meal at home to eating out, but honestly it's great to come to work and taste whatever has been served for breakfast. My favorite dish is the roasted sweet, red and yukon potatoes. If we have a staff lunch, I'm up for the buffet at Taste of India.
