The idea for Graze came from Chef Tory's love of comfort foods. Inspired by the New York gastropub scene, the menus feature a range of classics executed on a higher level than traditional pub food. We chose the name Graze because grass-fed animals and rotational grazing are important to us. Also, we want the menu to inspire our guests to do just that: graze. There’ll always be a variety of dishes and small plates to choose from – the kind of stuff chefs and foodies love to eat. As is the tradition with a pub or tavern, we see Graze as a gathering place in our community – a place that is not work and not home, where you can go and feel comfortable, surrounded by familiar faces. Along with our regular menus, you’ll have the option of Friday fish fries and weekend brunches. Of course the only thing that could make this sort of place better is if it served fantastic food. The food we serve is literally inspired. It is inspired by the people who grew it and this land where it was grown. It is inspired by the wonderful meals that we have eaten in locales near and far, quaint and exotic. It is inspired by our love of people gathering over food and drink to spend some time together.

In celebration of #negroniweek, we're offering up this Barrel-Aged Genever Negroni for your patio-sipping enjoyment! A predecessor to gin, genever has been around since the 1600s and is more herbaceous and fresh than its more popular counterpart. We mix ours with housemade vermouth rosso and, of course, Campari, served up with a lemon twist. #grazemadison
