Madeline’s owner, the award-winning pastry chef, Teresa Miller, worked with famed Ithaca restaurateur, Lex Chutintaranond in 1997,
when they converted the former Izard’s Department store into the upscale urban Euro-Asian fusion jazz eatery that has become a local fixture and tourist destination.

Madeline’s is a fusion of flavors and ingredients from the Pacific and Western worlds, creating a unique Euro-Asian cuisine.

The menu at Madeline’s changes frequently and evolves constantly with the seasons using the freshest ingredients throughout the year.

Desserts are a highlight at Madeline’s, filling all 16 feet of our fully stocked display case. Pastry chef, Teresa Miller, uses the best chocolate, fruits and liquors available when making the desserts.

The visually stunning bar highlights over 80 single malt scotches and brandies, a wine list of l00 bottles, representing wines from across the globe, and offering spirits rarely seen elsewhere.
