Cafe Madison Riverside, NJ continues to exceed expectations with a filet done Pittsburgh medium rare to perfection as well as my companion's dinner of the venison to hers. Kudos to the chef.

I checked the menu at Café Madison and I'm not certain if they have changed it as yet. They are closed today & thus I could not call them. If you would like to phone them, the # is 856 764- 4444.
