la Madeleine French Bakery & Cafe Restaurant Review: Sure, it’s a chain, but entering la Madeleine can conjure up images of a storybook French country village. They serve delicious baked goods, salads are dressed and tossed to order, quick picks like croque-monsieurs and quiches await in a heated display case, and a blackboard lists the daily specials. New items are introduced regularly, but the consistent favorites are tomato basil soup, Caesar salad and rosemary-roasted chicken. Take home a loaf of brick-oven baked bread or something from the pastry case to perk up your own cooking efforts.
