Permanently Closed - The Mad Platter Restaurant, located minutes from downtown in Historic Germantown, offers daily changing menus and an award-winning wine list. An example of our dishes include: filet of beef tenderloin cracked black pepper crusted and topped with stilton and red wine gastrique, sautéed shrimp and grits, and the mad platter rack of lamb marinated, seared, and slow-roasted to order.

This establishment is closing after many years. This was our goodbye dinner. I miss an elegant, not too trendy, reliable food eatery. This filled a needed function. Enjoy it before it's gone. I will miss it.

This was my final of many visits at lunchtime to the Mad Platter because, unfortunately, the restaurant is closing permanently in less than two weeks. The food was fresh and tasty as always and the restaurant was very busy, which probably accounts for the slow service in refilling my iced tea. I'm sorry to see the Mad Platter closing.

Sadly, we enjoyed our last meal at The Mad Platter this week which will be closing with the close of business New Years night. The Mad Platter has been a staple of our dining over the years, consistently serving inventive and satisfying fare. Our last dinner was no exception.
Our table shared the beet salad which was refreshingly dressed. My duck breast entree was served with mushroom ravioli - the duck slices were ample and perfectly cooked - as an extra bonus, the skin was light and crunchy. My wife had the risotto and I sampled heartily. It was warm, fluffy and satisfying. For dessert, the table shared the current version of chocolate creme brule topped with singed marshmallow creme. If you are going to go out - go out at a high level. Mad Platter goes out in the stratosphere. Congratulations Marcia and Craig and bon vivant in the years to come.
