Who’s hankering to sample several different Mad-Town restaurants in one night? Dishcrawl Madison may have the answer.
“Eat your way through Madison by stopping at four different restaurants in one night,” reads a March 1 tweet from Dishcrawl Madison. Participants will be invited to try passed or plated dishes at each location.
Restaurant patrons will enjoy a progressive dinner on the spring equinox, strolling through a quartet of Madison eateries for Dishcrawl, a gastronomical journey that takes place in dozens of cities across the United States. Similar events take place on various dates in such locales as Charleston, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Louisville, Milwaukee, Montreal, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Tampa, Toronto, and more.
Starting at 7 p.m. CT at The Bayou New Orleans Style Tavern on Butler Street (see map), Dishcrawl takes participants from one dining establishment to another, all within walking distance, but offering diverse cuisines. Ticketholders will receive specific restaurant location information by email, two days in advance.
The Dishcrawl Madison Facebook page, posted by Madison Dishcrawl Ambassador Zach Barnes, offered this description of the traveling culinary event.
[Dishcrawl will] take you on a stroll of select Willy Street gems that highlight this vibrant hub of ‘old Madison,” Savor your city’s seasonal tastes and new offerings from some fresh and some aged neighborhood haunts.. Don’t wait. Drop those cheese curds, and get your ticket now.
Tickets, priced at $45, are available online for Dishcrawl Madison on March 20. The event is limited to 40 individuals. Special menu options may be available, by advance request, for those with dining restrictions.
Future Dishcrawl Madison events may be added, perhaps as often as once a month, to feature a host of local neighborhoods.
