Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of faraway lands with today’s deal: for $12, you will receive $25 worth of eclectic cuisine at Bon Appétit Café. Bon Appétit is open Thursday–Sunday for brunch and dinner and is closed Monday–Wednesday.
Bon Appétit's bright-red façade, alluring green doorway, and smells of fresh cooking coax patrons in to where they can peruse a frequently changing menu. The eatery's dishes are largely prepared with locally produced ingredients, including organic eggs and grass-fed, natural meat. Brunch opens its coat to offer passersby an ever-evolving selection of sandwiches ($7.75), such as the BLT on sourdough, and the Ben Yeddar, in which chopped roasted egg, feta cheese, shredded carrot, onion, roasted cashews, mild green chilies, and a cumin-infused mayonnaise are laid to rest on fresh pita bread. Broaden taste horizons with treats such as panquecas ($7.95), Brazilian crêpes stuffed with fresh banana, topped with honey, and served with a choice of Spanish potato salad, polenta, or fruit. Recent dinner specials include Algerian pan-seared chicken, marinated in a spicy bath infused with roasted anise seed and served with special rice ($15.95).
On Thursday nights, Bon Appétit hosts a themed "around the world" dinner, with past themes including Moroccan cuisine and global sandwich night. The “around the world” meal features a multi-course dinner with a choice of entree and a hearty dose of culture administered via a 36-hour slideshow. The fare enjoyed at Bon Appétit is brought to your table through the power of REAP, the Research, Education, Action and Policy on Food Group program, which connects vendors to local food producers and suppliers.
- This is hands down one of the best restaurants in Madison when evaluating key factors like dedication to using high-quality, local ingredients, service, atmosphere, and cost. The menu is always original and creative; I have been coming here for over seven years and have rarely had a dish that I did not absolutely love. The wine menu is reasonably priced and rotates regularly, and the art, usually created by the owner, also adds a delightful touch to the overall ambiance. The entire place has a cozy atmosphere, and the creative menu is unparalleled in Madison. – stephanie, Google Maps
