W.A. Frost and Company
Focusing on fare sourced locally from family farms, the WA Frost menu features dishes dictated by the growing calendar and micromanaging harvest gods. For the nonce, you can sample small-plate selections such as homemade rutabaga gnocchi tossed with Brussels-sprout petals, Parmesan, sage, pancetta, and truffle syrup ($8.50), and marinated diver sea scallops bedded in a grapefruit, apple, and radicchio salad with verjus vinaigrette ($9.50). Grilled sustainable Wisconsin rainbow trout ($21), monkfish chioppino ($25), and Norwegian grilled salmon with black trumpet mushrooms and cabbage ($24) all star in WA Frost's featured dinner entrees, with assists from collard greens and smoked ham hock, vegetable mélange, or Yukon Gold potato puree ($6 each). Follow up the feast with a sophisticated sweet ending like the organic carrot cake ($6.75) mounted with chevre-cream-cheese mousse. WA Frost also boasts an impressive wine list with a strong representation of Bordeaux, California cabernet sauvignon, and chardonnay, as well as a wide range of vintage and non-vintage champagnes and sparkling wines.
