About Our Chef
The Best of dining with none of the pretentiousness
Johnnie Kerluke, the bilingual owner of Lady Madonna Restaurant, is a native of Canada’s East coast. Having lived and traveled throughout Canada and Europe, Johnnie settled in Texas and has worked here for fifteen years. After ten years, he comes to Lady Madonna Restaurant with a love of French cooking and a “penchant for perfection.”
His passion for pairing fine wines with unequaled fine foods and the enjoyment he gets from meeting people, ensures that restaurant ownership is the ideal life for him – and that dining at Lady Madonna is the ideal experince for “food lovers.”
We have a simple philosophy. The food is the most important thing. Many competitors play pricing games but we believe you get what you paid for and that cheap food is cheap food. We have always been a stubborn who believes there is only one way to prepare food and that is our way. Since the introduction of the buffett, we have always insisted that the food be fresh and always fill the buffett even when close to closing.
Our restaurent will change any item upon request or at his frequent trips to check the buffett. We believe that good food is hot food and fresh. Serving good food brings in customers and keeps the restaurant full. We believe that even when business is slow we should not cheat the customers. Our ideas are good for customers but not always good for making lots of money. This is what seperates him from other restaurant chefs.
