Description: The Spot is a well hidden gem on Madison's East Johnson Street. Specialties include seafood -- the Sea Scallops with cucumber melon salsa and creme fraiche are a crowd pleaser, featuring three perfectly seared U12 scallops. Another critic favorite is the Saltimboca-wich -- chicken, sage, chevre & prosciutto with aioli. Most diners don't leave without sampling the fabulous house-made desserts. The bar is a destination on its own, with offerings for all who enjoy a fine libation. Choose from 5 craft beers on tap that rotate often, a well curated wine list. Don't miss Half Price Happy Hour Monday-Thursday 5-7 pm! Established in 2013. In the building that housed the former Mildred's sandwich shop, The Spot retains the old east-side charm with handsome custom woodwork & an open kitchen. The guiding principal behind The Spot is simple; upscale dining in a casual atmosphere. The service & prices reflect those values.

“something different--and really good”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Menu strays from the norm of what is usually found in a Madison establishment. I've been twice now and will soon be back.
