Madison is a town for foodies. Most everyone knows this, including “Top Chef.”

Luckily, there is a bevy of new eateries and watering holes coming soon.

A few of those we’re most looking forward to:

Butterbird, 1134 Regent St., Madison
The casual counter service restaurant is set to open mid-January. It comes from the minds of Shaina and Joe Papach, owners of the Harvey House.

Le C’s Patisserie & Tea House, 7601 Elmwood Ave., Middleton
An additional location is coming in February. The popular bakery will have its favorites available, like bubble teas and cheesecakes.

Minocqua Brewing Company Tap Room, 2927 E. Washington Ave., Madison
Owner Kirk Bangstad will be opening a new taproom in the previous Growlers to Go-Go site in early 2024.

The Wedge, 2001 Atwood Ave., Madison
Two things that Wisconsinites love? Beer and cheese. Jacob Guyette will marry those two in the space once occupied by One Barrel Brewing Company. It should open by March.
