Madeleine’s

The 1919 Crescent Building is unusual for department store design because of the use of windows on all seven floors. The show windows were once a popular place for their Christmas displays. Escalators installed in 1948 were a sensation.

Madeleine’s occupies the northeast corner and serves pasteries as well as French-inspired dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Red Robin and the Melting Pot restaurants and a Starbuck’s shop occupy spaces in the annex building on the west end of the block.
