Well known for the many food awards that La Madeleine has won, the legendary Daniel Leusch - who's cooking was all about sublime, French-influenced perfections - has now been succeeded by his chef daughter Anne, who brings a playful touch to the restaurant.
Anne grew up in kitchens and then studied, cooked and cheffed her way around the international and local food world before taking over at La Madeleine. Her cheeky attitude to the classics produces joyful innovative plates.
There is no set menu. Every day can be quite different, depending on what's exciting and fresh. Most ingredients are sourced within a radius of 80 kms; specialty items like chervil, borage and free-roaming birds are farmed. Each day's options, narrated by Daniel, usually consist of about six each of starters and mains, a few desserts, and a pre-dessert platter of rare cheeses.
The alluring wine list is beautifully constructed, covering the bases from elegant to interesting and local to international.
