Francois Chocolate Bar – chocolate macaron with cocoa nibs08 Feb 2011, Posted by Francois Chocolate Bar, Uncategorized in
In my book, more than 7 or 8 distinct comments on one post makes for a true, viral sensation. I would even call the reaction to my Financier post a genuine kerfuffle. It’s interesting how much New Yorkers have to say about macarons. They might just be the next cupcakes.
As I mentioned last week, I have been trying a few macarons each day from a number of different bakeries to really get a feel for which ones taste best and are most likely to be fresh. I stopped by Francois Chocolate bar to score a dark chocolate macaron with nibs. I’m happy to report it was very soft and fresh and the dark chocolate actually tasted dark. The nibs were a bonus. $2.25 at the Francois Chocolate Bar in the Plaza food court.
