Chef's Corner Craft Table and Tap By Kelsey Sorenson Th ey say their food isn't fussy. But if you're a lover of prime pub fare, you'll fi nd plenty to fuss over at Middleton's newest gastro- nomical offering, Craft Table and Tap. At the table the emphasis is on American staples done right. A menu of mouth- watering burgers, slow-roasted meats and killer sandwiches topped with homemade sauces (including the Reuben pictured here), showcases a simple philosophy: to craft tasty cuisine from quality ingredi- ents.

At the tap, the restaurant offers a slew of brews, including 18 tap beers and over 50 bottled varieties, alongside a cocktail list of local staples like a Bloody Mary that is a meal in itself. Whatever you choose, you'll fi nd a menu full of Wisconsin favorites, done just the way you like them.
