Before 2020, if you wanted a fancy dinner, you’d probably have a fine time at L’Etoile. But then Harvey House opened in 2021, and became Madison’s best spot for fine dining. It nails the restaurant Holy Trinity: flawless (but not in-your-face) service, incredible food, and an atmosphere where you can feel comfortable wearing Levi’s or Loewe. The dinner menu has high-end takes on Wisconsin supper club classics, like Lake Superior walleye or a crispy chicken schnitzel as big as your dad’s Steely Dan vinyl collection. Another standout is the kale caesar, which is dressed generously (in true Wisconsin style) and topped with buttery croutons that will make you reevaluate all of your previous salad experiences.
