Madison and Environs

Hallo fellow midwesterners.

I'm taking a jaunt with my girlfriend to your lovely neck of the woods, in about a week and a half. We're staying in Cross Plains. So I'm looking for good eats around there.

L'etoile is on my list, we're going to visit the New Glarus brewery and eat stinky cheese in Monroe at Baumgartners -- what about other places inside or outside of madison?

I'm especially partial to bars that serve surprisingly god hamburgers, local specialties (where are the best fried curds in the area? homemade potato chips? fried catfish? ice cream parlor etc). And if the drive to these places takes me through some nice fall color, then all the better.

Thanks in advance.
