Claude Godard has a “Burgundy Passion”

When you taste Chef Godard’s Cuisine you can feel the roots from Burgundy.
Escargot, Egg “Meurette”, Short Rib Bourguignon and also Frog’s leg for “Special” are only example of what you can find on the Menu of Madison Bistro.
Good cuisine does match with good wines and here starts the show. The wine list is not over crowded but the selection is perfect with a nice focus on, Guess what? Wines from Burgundy of course.
From the north to the south starting by Chablis in the Yonne Valley to The Beaujolais region, now almost part of Burgundy family, you can enjoy a wide white or red selection.
Chablis, Vaillons, Valmur, Macon, Pouilly and more for the Chardonnay, Savigny, Gevrey Chambertin, Echèzeaux, Santenay, Reuilly are flirting with all the Beaujolais Crus.
Burgundy counts five well none grapes, Chardonnay, Sauvignon-blanc, Aligotes for the whites and Pinot-Noir and Gamay for the Reds and they are all beautifully represented at Madison Bistro.
We all know that Burgundy wines are not the most affordable but Claude wants to keep them accessible by not margin like a normal restaurant would do.
To share your passion with Burgundy, make a stop at Madison Bistro you will not be disappointed.
