Restaurant Week: 43 North

It's Restaurant Week here in Madison and I had a chance to try out 43 North. It's the brand new restaurant on King Street where Cafe Continental was located for years.  Lindsay and I went to eat with a couple of friends who we had taken to Cafe Continental about a year ago.  It was hard to believe it was the same place.  Although the manager told me the whole thing was remodeled in just about two weeks, it was hard to believe. As soon as you walk in, it feels like a totally different place.  There's not a lot of art on the walls or curtains in the window.  It has a very clean and crisp feel to it. The staff can also be described as crisp.  Our waiter was quite knowledgeable and dressed in black with a light blue tie which featured the 43 North logo very subtly stitched near the bottom.  He describe all the first, second and third course items in great detail.  I can't recreate his amazing descriptions, but I felt like I was getting an education in new food and food preparations. One of the items on the menu was hazelnut cannelloni, mushrooms, braised greens and banyuls emulsion.  Another was braised beef cheek, fontina cheese raviolo and beef jus.  I know what you're thinking.  How many times do we have to eat braised beef cheek and I can't believe the hazelnut cannelloni has banyuls emulsion?! Seriously, the presentation of the food was amazing.  The taste?  What do you think?  It was fantastic. We sat down for dinner at about 7pm and didn't leave until close to 10pm.  The time flew as conversation was good, but the food and atmosphere was even better. 43 North is not just a place to visit during Madison Magazine's Restaurant Week, but should also be in your roster of big city restaurants that we're lucky enough to have right here in Madison.

The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...
