I was invited to come break bread with Patrick Leon Esquerré(the founder of La Madeleine Country French Cafe) and his staff at their 18th Houston location. The new restaurant is located in the Tanglewood Court on San Felipe and Fountain View. The event consisted of a small introduction over coffee and pastries, followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony and lunch.
The location features an open patisserie, allowing customers to see their pastries being made by the bakers. This location is open, and has windows all around that draw light in.
La Madeleine is a family spirited company that was started 30 years ago, when Esquerré decided to bring a taste of France to the United States. Their first location opened in Dallas, Texas in 1983 and currently have over 70 restaurants nation wide. The guests, which consisted of some of the city’s influencers, enjoyed a tour of the facility and a meal courtesy of La Madeleine.
