Madison Magazine has a nice roundup of comfort food options in Madison restaurants, Feed the Soul: Cozy up to the most comforting dishes in town. Writer Aaron Conklin notes:
Madison’s a laissez-faire town, and its restaurant scene has no shortage of fabulous comfort-food options. But it’s hard to feel comfortable when you’re overwhelmed by freedom of choice, so we handpicked ten can’t-miss dishes to get you started on your own soul-satisfying pilgrimage. Eat, drink and be comforted.I'm especially partial to the pho, the amazing Vietnamese noodle soup at Ha Long Bay -- mostly because it's so delicious, but also because Madison used this photo of mine as an illustration.
