A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
For anyone spending a day or merely passing through Madison, Wisconsin, Madison Food is definitely a book to have on-hand. With plenty of available food choices from bakeries, delis, restaurants and markets, ranging from quick, historical, contemporary and cultural, the city of Madison offers something for everyone. Not only did I learn a bit of history within a capital city, I also gleaned some interesting, tasty places to try for lunch. Hopefully part of a series, I certainly will watch for similar types of books while traveling.

*I received a complimentary copy of Madison Food from The History Press for my honest review*
Obviously you can't mention every restaurant and every reader is gonna have a gripe or two about some favorite place missing from the top 100 list.
2 places I'll never forget that I'd like to give special mention to are -
1. ZARITAS - Located on State St. Fast Food Mexican. If you've been there you know EXACTLY what I mean !!!
2. UNCLE STANLEY'S STEAMERS - Located in University Square Mall (long gone now). The best (and most unique sandwiches) !!!!
