best LA county macaroons?
I've done basic yelp research
Oh my gosh... if you are looking for the coconut kind, look no further than pattimac's. Pattimac's - run by a woman named, not surprisingly, Patti - does these homemade, gorgeous plain and chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons that are INSANE. Without question, they are the best I've ever had in my life.
She doesn't have a retail store, but she does take orders...her website appears to be down but try emailing pattimacs.com... I think her email is actually just "Patti" at that domain. I actually just had a few last week at passover... it is unreal how good they are.
Information is scarce about Pattimacs, but I did find this in a thread on Facebook:
Patti Bank Finkelstein: "I recently started a gourmet macaroon business called pattimacs and they are fabulous! I am in Brentwood and make plain and chocolate dipped and sell by the dozen. My website is under construction. Any questions please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

I love the coconut macaroons (plain and chocolate dipped) at Claro's. I think they are from Frederico's Bakery.
Jin Patisserie on Abbot Kinney in Venice. They make beautiful French macarons in very inventive flavors.... Yuzu, passionfruit, earl grey tea, sea salt caramel. And they macarons really taste of those flavors. Where others have disappointed on flavor, these deliver!
Another good option is Bottega Louie downtown. Same deal .Great selection of innovative flavor profiles, beautiful and colorful.
And while this is not necessarily integral to your macaroon experience, BOTH Jin patisserie and Bottega Louie have great packaging! The designer in me can't help but note that as well.
