Savoring Seafood at Tempest
Madison's newest seafood bar impresses
The steakhouse and oyster bar are uniquely American creations. Restaurateur Henry Doane of Tornado Steak House and now Tempest Oyster Bar has dabbled with each. The space formerly home to Restaurant Magnus was transformed, rendering it brighter and whimsically nautical. The menu is a litany of fish and shellfish freshly harvested from the sea, including, of course, oysters from both the Atlantic and Pacific. Preparation is imaginative and each choice is more irresistible than the last. The seafood towers, dramatic spires of cold specialties sized
to taste, are a must! Tempest is sure to become one of the city’s most original and fun fish dining experiences.
