Ladurée opens in NYC

Who can resist the elegant French macaroon, delicate almond cookies surrounding a velvety filling of fragranced buttercream or fruit preserves? Certainly not us, in fact while living in Paris we treated ourselves to each flavor in every teahouse from the Marais to the 16th. Our favorite by far is Ladurée, the quintessential macaron maker, with the original bakery from 1862 still located at 16 Rue Royale in St. Germain des Prés. With boutiques in Europe, England, Japan and the Middle East, they finally opened an outpost in the United States. The first Ladurée shop in North America opened in Manhattan on Madison Avenue at 70th Street this August. Unfortunately no tea room just yet, but they are searching the area for a suitable space.

So if you’re in New York City this autumn, stop by this exquisitely designed patisserie for delectable treats packaged in their trademark celadon green and gold Napoleon III boxes, perfect for when you need that touch of Paris.
