When you saw the kiosk at Heathrow you knew it was only a matter of minutes before Ladurée opened in New York. You were correct. As The New York Times reports (www.nytimes.com/2011/08/31/dining/laduree-brings-its-macarons-to-new-york-food-stuff.html), Ladurée has crossed the Atlantic in all its splendor to serve eager macaron worshippers, who are, by the way, only too happy to wait in line and pay fortunes for the goods. And these sweets are all the more inviting when presented in one of the fantastic new boxes.
Go for it. Laduree is at 864 Madison Avenue (71st St) 646-558-3157
Open seven days a week.
