Your old friend from, say, San Francisco is visiting. You want to meet someplace that makes Madison seem less like a fly-over town? That'd be Forequarter. Chances are your friend hasn't even been to some of San Fran's best new restaurants, like Rich Table. But he sure talks a good game. Well, try flying over these gorgeously twee, impeccably crafted, glossy-magazine-worthy, trendy fermented and pickled veg food boards, oh jaded visitor. And now how about a bleeding-edge craft cocktail?
To really make the point, tell said friend there are more restaurants in Madison where this came from -- and that you walk or bike to all of them. And your mortgage is a quarter of his rent.
