We were definitely thinking of hitting up Kopps for custard after lunch. I've generally been partial to Leon's in the Milwaukee area custard wars, but Kopps is not a bad place, either. Those flavors look appetizing.


You might want to hit up the Delafield Brewhaus and then Le Duc's

That was one of my options until I saw they're closed on Sunday. :-?


How about 8 Twelve? Open 11-2 and 4-9 on Sundays.

That's an interesting option that I've always wanted to check out. I'll toss it out there for them too. Thanks! :D

I second Kopps, especially for some custard when you are done like you were thinking.

I'm going to be heading to Madison Wednesday night with a buddy to watch the Badgers/Iowa game and was going to stop at Salvatore's because everyone here raved about it.

Do I need reservations (assuming they take them)? We'll probably be getting there around 5:30-6. I would also like to take some pizza home and have my dad try it, since food is his life :P Does anyone know if the pizza reheats well or if they would do a par-bake type thing? Just trying to find a way for him to try it without the obvious of driving up there.

Thanks in advance.

Fair warning. It's not actually in Madison, It's in Sun Prairie which is about 10 minutes from the east side of Madison. If you are driving from Milwaukee it's actually somewhat on the way to Madison. I'm not sure about reservations, but it couldn't hurt to call and ask. It has a very small seating area (like 40 people or so) and it's just about always packed, but the wait is never very long. The pizza is awesome even after reheating. I have a toaster oven that I reheat it in and it tastes damn near as good as new every time.

Thanks! We are driving from Milwaukee so I'm glad to hear Sun Praire's on the way.

And glad to hear about the reheating process. If it's as good as you guys say, no pressure, maybe ill bring a whole one back for myself :)

So, was at Salvatore's last night and got their basic pizza with sausage and it was one of the best pizzas I have ever had!

I fell in love with the sauce, which reminded me of a place called Botolino's (sp?) that used to be on Downer across from UWM but closed. And the crust was perfect as I'm not a thin crust guy. The sausage was also some of the best I've ever had, so so tasty!

That's awesome to hear you liked it. If I can enrich one person's life with Salvatore's pizza I feel like I've made the world a better place.

Anyone have the untappd app? I just started using it. It lets you checkin the beers you're drinking and where you're drinking them. Let's you rate them and comment too. I decided to just do one checkin per beer to have a nice clean list. Friend me if you want by looking for my Twitter. Same as screen name.

I'm taking my wife to Milwaukee on Saturday, we are staying at the Hyatt downtown. I'm looking for a restaraunt that is somewhat romantic, and vegetarian friendly within walking distance. What's your opinion on the Calderone Club, does that fit the description??

Do you like Thai food? Thai Palace and King & Thai are both pretty solid, but unspectacular.

Calderone Club is a decent place to take a date because of the atmosphere. They used to be a place I loved because their food was all reasonably priced and tasty. For some reason they jacked up their prices by about 50-60% of what they used to be and now it just seems ridiculously overpriced to me.

My wife and I were big fans of the Calderone Club. A few years back we stayed at the Hyatt and were going to do a dinner date at that Polarus or whatever, but then decided to go to the Calderone Club. Really good food, atmosphere was good, and as of the last time we were there the prices were reasonable. I see the last post said they jacked up prices though, so I don't know.

Went to cafe benelux last night before the game. Being the winter, I was not expecting much. I have herd great reviews about what they do in the summer. It is certainly a different type of place, the menu was all very fancy and whatnot, and off to the side of their Burger Menu, they had a Pancake special. To say it is pricey is fair, my burger and fries with a drink cost me $18. I had their burger of the week special, which was a Mexican themed burger (it is a European restaurant serving a Burger with Queso :lol). Pretty much all it was was a nice sized burger with Pico De Gayo and queso. The burger was very good, but not a burger that I would ever pay $15 for. Most of the entrees for dinner are between 14-20. My parents were with me and had ifferent types of sandwiches. They were satisfied.
