We are a casual, European-inspired neighborhood brasserie located on Madison’s historic Monroe Street. Our concept is really pretty simple. It was borne out of the passion for the French Joie de Vivre developed over years spent in France and Belgium, and combines our love of rustic French food paired with Belgian beer and noble wines.
We offer a curated, rotating selection of over 250 world-class beers, including over 100 Belgians and 26 tap options. All of our beer coolers are temperature-controlled so the beers are presented at the recommended temp for each particular style. We have created relationships with brewers around the world, which enables us to offer some of the most unique, hard to find beers around.
Chef Casey Trumble and his staff prepare all food from scratch, using fresh, high-quality ingredients. While we are inspired globally, we source locally, with meats, produce, and cheeses often delivered directly from the Farmers and Artisans themselves. We offer a few signature items such as Moules-Frites, Steak-Frites, Cheeseboards, and the V Burger, along with a seasonal menu that changes quarterly.
There is always something fun going on around here to celebrate great food and drink, from beer tastings, brewer meet and greets, and special beer tappings to Farm to Table dinners and community events.

Also, we will be CLOSED, Sunday the 7th, for the Super Bowl "Holiday".
