Dan Fox, Heritage Tavern
Owner and Executive Chef Daniel Fox’s lengthy resume includes cooking at some of Chicago’s most beloved restaurants (Everest, Spring Restaurant) as well as abroad at restaurants in Austria and France. The Kendall College grad most recently worked as executive chef at the members-only Madison Club before opening Heritage Tavern in 2013.
Heritage Tavern has been recognized for its upscale farm-to-table cuisine and approachable, classic atmosphere. Patrons enjoy twists on familiar dishes that only use local and sustainable ingredients.
In 2011, he founded Fox Heritage Farms to raise heritage breeds of pigs to provide to Madison and Milwaukee-area kitchens. That same year, Fox also founded Slopig, a culinary event billed as a “celebration of heritage pigs and the people who drive the movement.”
Fox was Madison Magazine’s 2013 Chef of the Year and a James Beard Midwest region semi-finalist in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
