I’m not going to lie. I am a bit obsessed when it comes to macarons. When I was 9 months pregnant with #dailybabyavery, I waddled all the way to the Upper East Side in Manhattan to visit the first U.S.-based Ladurée shop (the macarons are actually flown in from Paris each day). Big mistake. I have been spending my hard earned dollars on those teeny, colorful, delectable pastries ever since!
I read that a Ladurée “house” opened recently in Miami (the second U.S. location since New York), but I thought because of the distance, it would be best saved for a special occasion.
Enter Le Macaron French Pastries in Mizner Park. I have been walking by the space (next to Sloan’s) for months now and it FINALLY opened this week!
And the wait was worth it. Le Macaron definitely knows how to make its namesake and then some. I am normally a huge fan of the standard Vanilla macaron (Ladurée wins that bakery battle), but the Gingerbread flavor was unique and pretty darn delicious. Pair that with one of their handcrafted chocolates and you are in for a TREAT.
Mind you, a box of 6 costs $13.80 + tax, so it’s probably not going to turn into your daily family dessert, but for special occasions, parties or a beautiful Friday night walking the park, I highly recommend. Full menu below.
