Dining Out: Madison Country Club adds surprisingly modern flair to food

Plenty of times this past spring and summer, I played golf at Madison Country Club and looked with curiosity on the clubhouse. I’d heard rumors about restaurateur Nicholas Kustala, owner of the Vault Steakhouse, also in Madison, being involved in a new restaurant there.

As it turns out, the property was purchased out of receivership in August, and Kustala’s group is no longer involved in the eatery there, which used to be called Allure. Now it’s just Madison Country Club, and I finally scratched the itch of my curiosity on a recent Saturday evening.

Walking through the lobby to the restaurant, you’re reminded right away that the building used to be a true country club, though now both the course and restaurant are now open to the public. The entrance way can be described as grand, and the restaurant itself — while updated with a more contemporary vibe — still has the dark hardwood, white tablecloths and ornate chandeliers you might expect in such a space.

The menu, however, isn’t exactly what you might expect.
