Mark those calendars. LX World reports that famed Parisian macaron shop Maison Ladurée will open at 864 Madison Avenue on August 27. The tipline has been bombarded with questions about the drop date ever since news broke that the lauded shop was finally crossing the Atlantic.
I will be in the city for the US Open tennis starting August 25th and this will be one of the "must" stops on my list of things to do while in the city for the week!! I have been looking at photos of wonderful pastries from this place for years and cannot wait to see/try them in person!!
The Madison Avenue outpost will include two distinct rooms—one for sales and one for order taking and sitting and conversing on "antique chairs upholstered in 19th century fabrics"—and will boast an adjacent tea room. It will be outfitted "in the style of a private French home."
The hours will be Monday - Friday 9am-6pm, Saturday 930am - 6pm and Closed Sunday
Phone is 646-558-3157
REVISED OPENING DATE PER THEIR WEBSITE OF 08/27/11
