A couple of weekends ago we went to a party with catering by Madeleine’s Bistro in Tarzana. And every last treat was divine! So, yesterday my husband surprised me with a birthday brunch at this magical bistro… and OMG.
We started with a bottle of organic bubbly and beignets with apple compote, followed by french onion soup (which gets a double OMG – I thought veganism meant goodbye to this treat, but alas NO!) and red beet tartare on a “goat cheese” crouton, followed by chicken & waffles and a bigger “maque” – the bistro’s A-MA-ZING vegan take on the big mac. And yes, there’s more… we finished our meal with a bananas foster split hot fudge and all!

I had heard from several reliable sources that Madeleine’s is the best vegan restie in Southern Cal (top 5 in the entire country)… and seriously – it’s the best I’ve had!
