The first of Loire Valley native Patrick Leon Esquerré’s La Madeline boulangeries opened on Mockingbird Lane in University Park with the backing of famous retailer Stanley Marcus. To date, there are more than 60 locations, including spots in shopping centers, malls and freestanding operations. No matter where the outpost, all La Madelines exude the charm of the French countryside to the nth degree, at times reaching the gratuitous. The most popular mealtime is breakfast, where customers enjoy specialties like Egg Crêpe Champignon along with a Fruit Salade. However, it’s the Caesar Salade that is the restaurant chain’s most popular. Other signature items include the Croque Monsieur and Chicken Friand. The latter comes with a healthy dose of béchamel. Can’t forget the tre magnifique Duet Magnifique. Oui.
