If you’re visiting NYC you may find yourself down in Soho, and if you do I highly recommend checking out the Ladurée tea salon, on West Broadway between Watts and Broome. Anyone who follows me on Instagram probably knows of my obsession with the macarons at the Madison Avenue Ladurée on the Upper East Side, but sitting down in the Soho tea salon is really a gorgeous experience. The decor feels straight out of Versailles (not that I’ve ever been there, but it’s how I imagine it!)… I even had a drink called the Marie Antoinette. Everything is opulent, very Parisian, and very luxurious, from the gorgeous china, to the sumptuous curtains, to the leopard print rug in one of the dining rooms. And that’s to say nothing of the amazingly pretty and delicious macarons and pastries, which are displayed gorgeously in the front cafe area. They also have a full menu of regular food and an extensive tea and drink list, so it’s really a full out restaurant. Even though the decor is fancy, the atmosphere is laid-back and relaxed, and our waiter was super, super nice…so overall I think it’s a perfect brunch spot!
My Mom got this pastry…wish I could remember what it was called! Well whatever it was, it was delicious.
