Macarons on Madison

I finally made my way over to Laduree, on Madison between 70 and 71st. I feel so lucky to have this little Parisian gem just a few blocks away from my apartment! The shop itself is absolutely gorgeous, and sells beautiful candles and perfumes in addition to the delicious macarons. I brought a box home for my Mom’s birthday and we were all highly impressed with the light, yet incredibly flavorful little pastries. My sister said the pistachio was the BEST pistachio she’s ever had-and she is VERY particular about her pistachio. They come in charming colors and flavors like orange blossom, rose, and blackcurrant violet, and they are imported every day from France! The boxes they come in are like little keepsakes too- so pretty. These would make a great gift for the holidays-a little taste of Paris right here in New York!

DYING over these houndstooth boxes!

This shop is going to be a problem for my wallet…and possibly my waistline!
