Ladurée Macarons

September 10, 2011 at 10:58 pm 2 comments

My dear hubby had to get there before 9am and was the first in line, about 15mins after it open the line grew to 20 people. These were quite good and a few were amazing (black currant is my fav) great balance of flavors not too sweet. However, I still give the edge to La Maison du Chocolate for imported macarons (though I may need to go back to Ladurée soon for some jams also). There are fewer flavors at La Maison but the ganache is unbeatable, there’s no line, and you can pick up some chocolates too. So if you are in the city and find the lines too long at Ladurée, head down to La Maison du Chocolat (there are two locations in Manhattan).

    When we visited Paris last year Ladurée was on the absolutely-essential-to-visit list! I didn’t mind waiting in line as we got to absorb the beautiful creations there.. Aside from that there were people rushing in and out of the kitchens with great towering works of art, to the point where it would have been such a shame to eat any of it! Shame they are so tasty too!!!
