I read it in the Isthmus and there phone number has been disconnected. Guess it's true. I thought their food was only so-so but like the building and location. I hope something good goes there.

Four years later their former space in Middleton is still vacant with a 'for lease' sign. I wonder how much the landlord is asking? The idiot should have kept Blue Spoon there.

What was bizarre about it? They had a good menu and nice atmosphere. Their Blue Spoon in Prairie du Sac does well and is one of the best places to eat there. Always has a good crowd when I go there.

It took five years but a new place is opening there.

Member of Stella's Bakery family to open restaurant
http://host.madison.com/wsj/entertainme ... 5745d.html

"Max Harn of the Stella's Bakery family is opening a restaurant in Middleton serving grass-fed beef burgers, wood-fired pizzas and simple brunches. Max's is going into the two-level spot at 2831 Parmenter St., where a second location of Prairie du Sac's Blue Spoon Café used to be. It has sat vacant since Culver's closed its more upscale casual dining restaurant in 2010.

Harn said the meat used at Max's will be local, much of it coming from Violet Rose Cattle Company, the cattle farm he runs with his mother Coralia about 10 miles west of Richland Center. If they can't produce enough, Harn promises to get beef from other farmers in the area."
