Madison Avenue in NYC, just became a little more posh! If you have been to Ladurée, in Paris and tasted the wonderful delights produce by this Parisian institute since1862, when it first established a tea room near the Place de la Concorde, you know exactly what I'm speaking of. The inside is decorated as a fabulous designer boutique ~ providing the perfect background for displaying chocolates, tabletop items and, the most coveted
Each season much like in fashion a new collection of flavours is launched. How perfect is it that Madison Ladurée will be celebrating the cinnamon-raisin macaron! To know that my passion for Ladurée is now just a modest drive or very short flight away, has me swooning! Especially after learning that the macarons are made in Paris and shipped overnight, to their locations outside Paris. It will truly be like biting into a little piece of Paris.
There is a small area were patrons can sit and enjoy some conversation while enjoying the most fabulous flavours of sweets to be brought together along with a cup of tea. I am absolutely crazy for their Marie Antoinette (one of the many flavours they serve) tea, which I was introduced to during our first visit to Paris and Ladurée, last year. My upcoming trip to NYC in this autumn just became a little more sweeter!!
Ladurée, 864 Madison Avenue (71st Street), (646) 558-3157, open Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Sunday, noon to 6.
