Madison dinner before theatre

Depends what you like, but I've heard nothing but good things about Old Fashioned for comfort food WI style. For something less heavy (on the plate, not on the wallet) there's Fresco, right in Overture. Or for something about as stylish but not quite as skilled, there's Crave (good drinks, OK food).
Wherever you go, it would be fun to hear how it turned out!
