A few months ago, when I wrote about the restaurants and products of Paris, France, I mentioned Laduree as a great place to get macaroons. And although, nothing beats their macaroons, there are still a few places in NYC to get good macaroons. French macaroons should be gluten free, however, always check with the restaurant to ensure that they did not add any gluten ingredients.
The other day, I came across a place on the upper west side of NYC called Silver Moon Bakery. Here they have an assortment of french macaroons. The great thing about this bakery is that they sold the macaroons in both large and small sizes. They come in a variety of flavors including blueberry, raspberry, chocolate, vanilla, etc.
Another great place in NYC to have macaroons is at Payard Patisserie. Payard sells the smallmacaroons in a variety of flavors including raspberry, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, blueberry, and pistachio. However, the flavors do change from time to time.
To eat some delicious french macaroons, visit:
Payard Bistro 1032 Lexington Ave. (between 73rd and 74th St.)
