Fodor's Review

Credited with spawning the country's Slow Food movement during the 1970s and 1980s under founder Odessa Piper, L'Etoile is a farm-to-table restaurant on Capitol Square. It is also Madison's most elegant restaurant. Chef-owner Tory Miller rewrites the menu daily based on what's in season at Dane County farms. Eclectic dishes like Korean barbecued rack of lamb are prepared using classic French techniques and adopt a global spin. Begin the meal with a charcuterie board featuring head cheese, house pickles, and pork rillettes, and conclude with a build-your-own Wisconsin cheese plate.
