NYC — Spring 2016: Ladurée Soho

Thursday, May 12, 2016
After a long afternoon of walking and shopping, my mom and I wanted a place to sit down and relax and maybe have a treat or two. We found ourselves in Soho, so I took us to Ladurée for afternoon tea.

Desserts at Ladurée Soho

Macarons in Pistachio, Coffee, Salted Caramel, and Praline Vanilla

Millefeuille Praliné

I came here for lunch last year and while the food was decent, it wasn't spectacular and certainly wasn't worth the incredibly inflated prices. But their sweets are incredible and it is well worth coming here for afternoon tea. We didn't indulge in the actual tea service, but I did get a pot of Earl Grey, four macarons — three signature flavours (pistachio, salted caramel, and coffee) and one seasonal flavour (praline vanilla) — and their millefeuille praliné, a beautiful marriage of crisp caramelized puff pastry, smooth praline cream, and crunchy almond pralines, with a flurry of crispy hazelnuts in between. I still maintain that they make some of the best macarons in the world and if you like macarons, Ladurée is a must-visit (they are the originators of the macaron, after all), but if you have a little more time to indulge, their other treats are really worth checking out. Ultimately, Ladurée is a pastry house, and that is what they do best.

  1. We are going to NYC for Memorial Day weekend (next weekend), and this is SO on my list! I'm glad to hear that their pastries do not disappoint!

    1. Ahhh, HAVE FUN!!! You definitely need to come here for afternoon tea. So perfect after some hefty shopping, lol. Oh, if you're in Soho, you gotta stop by Dominique Ansel, too. The DKA and the madeleines (made fresh to order!) are phenomenal. And if you get there early enough, they might have some cronuts left (they created the cronut there). :)

    2. Lol, I know! But I figured Dominique Ansel was gonna be nuts. It's gonna be the holiday weekend, so I imagine NYC is going to be PACKED.

    3. Dominique Ansel is worth the line-ups! They go through them fairly quickly, though. Weirdly enough, I always find it to be the opposite in NYC for holiday weekends -- people usually vacate the city to the Hamptons or some other beachy area rather than stay in! I hope you get to go to NYC again soon, LOL. You need to experience Dominique Ansel. :D
