After years of pining, and wishing, and hoping, it’s finally happening. Vogue reports in its August 2011 issue (page 147) that Ladurée is opening in New York. Ladurée is my favorite purveyor of Parisian macarons, and hot chocolate, and other gorgeous, pastel, delicately flavored pastries. They make fantastic, crisp, sweet, giant palmiers. And beautiful floral flavors, like the violet religieuse and orange flower macaron. Vogue reports the new store will be opening this summer, at 864 Madison Avenue (between 70th and 71st). The Ladurée website makes no mention of the upcoming opening, and from the Vogue article, it is unclear as to the range of pastries the NYC shop will be selling. But macarons are definitely on the list, with the signature “cinnamon raisin” flavor created especially for New York. We’ll see which others made the American list. I can’t. Hardly. Wait.
