Dinner at Tornado Club

I had a great meal at the Tornado Club Steakhouse in Madison, Wisc., located just off Capitol Square. I had the on-the-bone tenderloin, which was something I had never seen on a menu before.

It was cooked perfectly.

This restaurant has a great ambience -- the exterior neon sign, the music inside and the dark pine walls give it a wonderfully clubby 1950's vibe.

I also took advantage of the restaurant's very patron-friendly corkage policy -- only $20 a bottle (so long as it's not a wine that they have on their wine list).

The wine I brought along was a 2005 Stag's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon. Excellent, although I'm sure it would drink even better if it cellared for 2-5 more years.
