At least one shop in DC is participating in Macaron Day – I wonder if we can use that to nudge other shops into joining up, though we still won’t have access to La Maison’s creations (grumble…). That is a serious list of participants.

I think this is the kind of thing that will grow -slowly but in a few years we’ll say “remember when just a few shops participated?”

Niko what pastry shop you recommend me to go? I love macaron.


There are quite a few good ones on the list. I have reviewed nearly all the one’s above on the site. Near you Biso and Payard are great. The Macaron Cafe has some great citrus flavored macarons and a few other flavors (midtown) Of course Bouchon (Time Warner Center) and Payard (Plaza) also have excellent macarons too. Uptown, both Georgia’s is really good you just have to make sure they are fresh (I like to ask which has the most turnover)

I will try Biso and macaron Cafe. Thank you Niko:)

Here’s my review of Macaron Cafe:

I like the way macaron look at Macaron cafe.

Bisou ciao is the best among the listed places. One bite is all you need.

[…] New York Macaron Day just around the corner I thought I would have a Dessert Buzz contest.  One of the two pictures […]

I went to Bisou ciao today and I bought a box of 6 macaron and I ate everything and left me wanting more. The caramel macaron, pistachio and rosewater are out of control. For me one of the best macaron place in NYC.

@ Antonio – many commenters have said that the Bisou Ciao macarons are excellent. I definitely have to get myself down there.

Hello Niko,
Do go to Bisou Ciao and review it. It is one place you will enjoy.

[…] Mad Mac’s macarons Recommended (website is here.) Notes: The choice of Jacques  Torres for his big anniversary party.  And The Macaron Parlour Recommended: lemon, dark chocolate ganache, raspberry.  Notes: These guys have a cult following from their Hester Street Fair appearances–you won’t be disappointed.  (website is here.)
