All Where to Eat in Sherwood
- Inspired by the traditions of Wisconsin taverns and supper clubs, The Old Fashioned exists to pay tribute to the foods and spirits that make our state famous. Here, that means so much more than beers, brats, and cheese. Don’t worry, we take all those things very seriously, but we’re equally committed to preserving the unique heritage that defines our way of life. When you walk through our doors, you’ll not only experience what Wisconsin was, you’ll taste what it always will be.
- L’Etoile has served local and seasonal offerings since it first opened its doors in 1976. Former owner Odessa Piper, a pioneer of the sustainable food movement, prided herself in the cultivation of strong farm-to-restaurant relationships. Her support of Madison area farms and artisan producers helped grow what is now the largest producer-only farmers’ market in the nation. Through the years, L’Etoile has become known as a “shining star” in the Midwest for its consistency in quality and service. In 2005, Odessa sold L’Etoile to her Chef de cuisine Tory Miller and his sister, Traci Miller. They have not only kept L’Etoile’s traditions alive but are especially committed to supporting the newest generation of farmers. They encourage young farmers to explore heirloom varieties, heritage breed animals, and the production of new artisan products while also working to preserve Wisconsin’s fertile terroir. Under the Millers, L’Etoile expanded their first-floor bakery and opened Café Soleil, a casual lunch spot offering a variety of made-from-scratch soups, salads, sandwiches, and sweets. In the five short years of ownership, L’Etoile, under Chef Tory, continues to win high praise both locally and nationally for its excellence in food and service. Recent recognitions include Gourmet Magazine’s “America’s Top 50 Restaurants”, Saveur’s “Top 100” and the title of Madison Magazine’s “2010 Chef of the Year”. In June of 2007, co-owner Dianne Christensen joined the team and they began dreaming up a new space for L’Etoile and the addition of a gastropub they’d call Graze. As is true with all their other endeavors, their motivation stemmed from a desire to increase their support to local farmers and offer food that uses great ingredients to a larger audience.
