French Macaroons...

I am in search of french macaroons, the sandwich kind. Any thoughts on where I can find these? Payard?

  1. Probably Fauchon, if anywhere.

    1. Also Bouchon in time warner center.

      1. La Maison du Chocolat has them, as does the French pastry shop in Chelsea Market (Goupil & DeCarlo).

          Delicious ones at LaMduC...sold in two sizes, large & small.

        2. I think they're actually "macarons", not "macaroons." I only know b/c my friend was giving me a hard time for misspelling it myself ...

          Anyway, I second John--Bouchon Bakery makes some delicious macarons, the caramel being my favorite.

            I want to 3rd the recommendation for Bouchon's. they are fantastic. the ones at Almondine in Dumbo are pretty good too.

          2. I bought some mini ones at Payard recently.
