madeleine bistro

My dad said it right.

Madeleine Bistro treats cuisine like a craft.

Sometimes the best way to get your creative juices flowing is to enforce a restriction…

Dr. Seuss limited himself to 250 of the simplest words in English and wrote Cat in the Hat.

The masterminds behind Madeleine Bistro limit themselves to plants.

Pear endive salad with smoked “cheese”

Beet Tartare on Cheesy Tofu Crouton with cucumbers and balsamic drizzle (cut it half before I took the pic! bummer.)

Portobella on Polenta with this creamy sauce, and roasted cauliflower with two amazing sauces

Asparagus Risotto on a bed of kale with eggplant bacon

Holiday Preview: Herb-crusted Seitan, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and coconut yams.

Fancy food doesn’t do much for me.  Originality does.  And I found it here.
