I'm not sure we need more macaron shops in New York; that trend has come and, well, not exactly "gone," but it's not the new new thing it once was. Everyone who made cupcakes seemed to move into macarons and now maybe is going back to cupcakes (or bringing them to Paris). It's all getting so confusing!
But I guess we can always handle a bit more Paris in New York, especially on Madison Avenue (at 71st Street), already the second home for more Parisian designer houses than I care to count. Ladurée, the self-proclaimed creator of the macaron, is now here, and from the line inside the shop this morning, there's no doubt that there's room for at least one more macaron shop in this town.
