    Oh, yes. I know of three places. La Anjou Patisserie in Mt. Kisco has them, but they are very small and mediocre. La Tulip, which is also in Mt. Kisco, has amazing macarons and I highly recommend them. But the Perennial Chef in Bedford Hills has equally amazing ones, which are also highly recommended.
    On a side note, I heard that Starbucks was going to start carrying them. Imagine that!

      As MicahSacco said, La Tulipe has EXCELLENT macarons. They seem to rotate flavors. My favorites are the chocolate, pistachio, and rosewater.

          Kneaded bread has them, though I've never tried them. They look tasty if that counts for anything...

            Adam, I have seen the coconut variety on the left side of the bakery on top of the counter. Where are the french macarons located I never noticed them, but would like to try theirs?

              oh, you know what? I've only seen the coconut macaroons too. Just did a google search on french macaroons and am now realizing they seem to be completely different from the coconut ones. so... I have no idea if they have them or not. I'm doubtful they do.

              thanks for keeping me honest chowdom! :)

                Thanks Adam, I will just have to try one of their coconut macaroons I like them too. I agree with you that they look really good.

              I saw an array of lovely ones at Jean-Jacques in Pleasantville a few days ago. I don't remember the price except they were definitely less expensive than the ones I got in Manhattan at a macaron boutique bakery last year. Maybe 75 cents each?

                That's pretty reasonable. I think that La Tulipe was $1.75 each. Fortunately I had a Groupon-like deal for them. Got a variety of stuff with it, all very tasty.

                The bakery at the Culinary Institute has delicious macarons, and quite a selection of flavors. But, when we ordered one of the chocolate varieties, we were told that they were sold out, and that the chocolate-based flavors always sell out quickly. So, we wondered why, if they knew this, don't they bake more of these popular flavors, and less of the ones that go the slowest? Isn't this something that culinary students should be taught, how to manage inventory properly? Anyway, the flavors that we tried were good, although they were not chocolate or cocoa?

                  There's a bakery right across the street from the Crestwood station, Martine's Bake Shoppe maybe?

                    Martine's in Scarsdale also has them.
