Our favorite restaurant is closing today. Well, kinda.
Dream Dance, the concoction of chef Jason Gorman, who creates new Wisconsin cuisine, is opening later this month as a steakhouse. And, although the restaurant has excellent meat offerings, it's still a bit sad to see the current design of the restaurant end and undergo a transformation.
At our most recent visit, I had the Pork Confit Schnitzel ala Holstein (Sunny side up egg, compressed cabbage, lingonberry preserves), which was delicious and had some complex flavors. It was also a generous portion.
Melissa had U.S.D.A. Certified Black Angus Filet for protein and, as a side, Crispy Chive Dumpling, which had a cheddar sauce. We had the dumplings the time before last, and they were delicious then, too.
We look forward to Dream Dance Steak, the next reincarnation of the restaurant, which "will offer retail-priced wine, in addition to reasonably priced dishes, all in a shorter dining time," according to the restaurant's Web site.
I'm sure it will be good, but it won't be the same.
