There’s been a bit of a buzz about LadurÃ©e opening in Manhattan last week. I keep hoping they’d think of us on the west coast as their next expansion target, but if it’s taken them over 100 years to cross the Atlantic I won’t be holding my breath. I suppose it’s still easier to get my LadurÃ©e fix by popping into NY than Paris though.
But that’s not to say that other people haven’t tried their hands at the macaron game. Right here in Old Town Pasadena (and also Beverly Hills) we have Lette, which offers a smaller selection.
My first tries include violet cassis, lychee (seasonal), and coffee:
I can’t exactly say Lette has cured my love for LadurÃ©e, but the lychee one was quite beautifully done.
So…who wants to go to Paris with me :D?
