Even before walking into the restaurant, I noticed a visible difference in style. Most notably, this La Madeleine doesn’t use paper menus. Instead, a large, virtual menu hangs behind the register and changes depending on time of day and menu options. And no more walking through a line with a tray. In this location, orders are delivered to your table. In the revamped kitchen the lack of microwaves or fryers underlines the fact that all items are made fresh, on-site.
This is the first La Madeleine of its kind, and all others made after it will follow the updated pattern. (Already-existing locations may undergo a few updates, but for the most part they’ll stay the same.) All locations, no matter their style, will be add limited-edition desserts to their menus for the holiday season. Additions include mini-gingerbread creme brulée, peppermint chocolate parfait, coconut macaroons dipped in chocolate, triple-chocolate peppermint cookies, and gingerbread-fig muffins resembling miniature bundt cakes.
