Known as the inventor of the double-decker macaron, and also as the makers of some of the best macarons in the world, Laduree is the perfect Parisien pitstop in your New York adventures. This luxury cake and pastry shop originated in Paris in 1862 and to this day stays true to its reputation of quality and decadence. Duck into here (or rather, join the excited queue to duck in here) to marvel at the beautifully Victorian elegance of their décor as you ruminate over which of their over a dozen flavors of macarons to choose from will be your indulgence that day. Should you be overwhelmed by the delicious choice, we highly recommend salted caramel, pistachio and yuzu!
