Madison Originals is a not-for-profit association of local, independently-owned restaurants and affiliated businesses in the Madison, Wisconsin area. Our mission is to promote Madison area¿s unique independent dining establishments through collaboration, stewardship, innovation, diversity and quality. Our vision is to cultivate a vibrant local independent dining community for our diners, restaurant members, vendor members and the community. We appreciate your business and invite your continuing support of the employees and entrepreneurs who help make the Madison area special.
Madison Originals supports and encourages purchasing from locally owned and operated businesses. We believe in the strength that local buying can give our local community and encourage our members to seek out locally owned and operated business partners.
Madison Originals was founded in August 2003 after Marcia and Patrick O'Halloran, of Lombardino's and The Old Fashioned, visited Kansas City and discovered a local restaurant movement there, Kansas City Originals. Together a small group of local restaurateurs successfully started the association with over 40 member restaurants. The dining public in the Madison area showed phenomenal support for the organization at the first group event, held at Quivey's Grove in October 2003. Since then our organization has worked toward our goals of joint marketing, fundraising, and public education through a variety of events over the years, including golf outings and Flavors of Madison events. Madison Originals founded the Dueling Chefs competition at the Madison Food and Wine Show, was instrumental in bringing Restaurant Week to Madison, and raises donations for area charitable organizations through events and fundraisers each year.
