great marzipan?

I used to love Elk Candy company on 85th and 2nd, ate their candy for years, and I love marzipan in general. Since Elk closed, I've tried other marzipan- including all the Lubeck marzipan brands, but I've never found anything that came close.

So are there any good stores in NYC that make their own marzipan, like Elk used to do, or does anyone know of any good mail-order/online sources?
