Heritage Tavern

In an old world ambiance, one block off of Madison’s capitol square, Wisconsin’s finest ingredients meet global inspiration, culinary excellence and expertly crafted cocktails.

Dan Fox, 2013 Chef of the Year — Madison Magazine, September 2013

Owner and Executive Chef Daniel Fox’s lengthy resume includes cooking at some of Chicago’s most beloved restaurants (Everest, Spring Restaurant) as well as abroad at restaurants in Austria and France. The Kendall College grad most recently worked as executive chef at the members-only Madison Club before opening Heritage Tavern in 2013.

One of the city’s most anticipated restaurant openings, Heritage Tavern has been recognized for its upscale farm-to-table cuisine and approachable, classic atmosphere. Patrons enjoy twists on familiar dishes that only use local and sustainable ingredients. Please click to view our preferred FARMS or MENUS. As Madison Magazine writes, “Creations range from pub-style sandwiches to elaborate spreads, like the broken-down whole rabbit and lobster dish, served family-style on a rustic wooden board. On it you’ll find both animals fully utilized, each and every edible part creatively cooked to highlight its unique assets. It’s a sight to behold.”

The Chicago area native also has a passion for pigs—raising heritage breeds, that is. In 2011, he founded FOX HERITAGE FARMS to raise heritage breeds of pigs including Hampshire-Yorkshire, Mangalitsas, Swabian Hall, Red Wattle and Tamworth-Hereford—all of which are prized by chefs for their flavor. Heritage Farms provides pigs to other Madison-area kitchens including Osteria Papavero, A Pig in a Fur Coat, Brasserie V, the Madison Club and Milwaukee-area restaurants.

In 2011 Fox also founded Slopig, billed as a “celebration of heritage pigs and the people who drive the movement.” The successful culinary event features a celebrity chef competition, heritage pig tastings, butchery demonstrations and craft spirit tastings. Fox was Madison Magazine’s 2013 CHEF OF THE YEAR and a James Beard semi-finalist for the Midwest region in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
