La Madeleine
If you want to feel fancy without breaking the bank, bundle up the family and head to La Madeleine for a très bien breakfast, lunch or dinner. Enjoy tomato basil soup, a salad sampler, free bread (woohoo!), and so much more by their cozy, double-sided fireplace. Just be sure to save room to say “oui, oui” to dessert.

The 57th Fighter Group Restaurant
