Charles Lazzareschi, executive chef

Lazzareschi entered the city's pantheon of culinary conquerors last week when he won the Dueling Chef competition at the 2008 Madison Food & Wine Show. >More
 Anthony Verbick, manager, Rachel Fox, gallery/events director at Ma-cha Teahouse

Teas like these are sheer luxury. Sip a cup at Ma-cha and buy an ounce or two to brew at home. >More
 La Brioche's David Yankovitch, co-owner

Remember Bakers' Rooms and Ovens of Brittany? Those vanished culinary institutions were the brainchildren of Joanna Guthrie, holistic foods practitioner and the mother of Madison's morning bun tradition. Yankovitch, an original member of Guthrie's flock, went on to own two previous incarnations of La Brioche. The second, in Midvale Plaza, was done in by development. In its brand-new, much more ambitious life, La Brioche brings back all the flavor and ambience of that original Bakers' Rooms and then some. >More
 Plaka Taverna's Telly Fatsis, owner

A legendary old diner is reincarnated in August as Mad City boho chic - a gentle model of urban renewal that calls for celebration. Do it with dolmades, and a shot of ouzo. >More
 David Bacco, chocolatier

Why you should go: It's like walking into a pirate's chest full of edible treasures. >More
 Perry McCourtney, Custard King and 'Jack' Dix, Custard K9

Take Poochy out for K9 Custard and get yourself a turtle sundae - it's the coolest thing to do on a hot day. >More
 Yul Ouattara, co-owner, and Zeba Mamadou, assistant manager

It's new, it's hip, it has exotic cuisine and parking, too. >More
 Nhia Vang, vegetable gardener

I've been doing this a very long time -- nine or 10 years. I came to the U.S. in 1982. When I came to the States I went to California, but I ended up in Madison in '85 because I had relatives here. I worked for many years as a cook at a Chinese restaurant, the Happy Wok, out by East Towne. While I was doing that I started renting a garden plot to grow food for my family. >More
 Bob Crowe, Manager of The Seafood Center at Willy Street Co-op

Why you should go: Because you're picky about fish. >More
 Anna Zalner, Head bartender & Saturday server at The Continental

Why you should go: Last year Jim and Nick Schiavo, who own Cafe Continental on King Street, took over the little castle that used to be La Paella. This summer they've put some of their old family recipes back on the table, and turned the patio into one of the best outdoor dining spots in town. >More
