Les Marquis de Ladurée
Do we have any Ladurée fans around here? I'm guessing the answer is yes. In that case I'm pretty sure you're going to like what's coming. Apparently Les Marquis de Ladurée, Ladurée's new boutique for all things chocolate, has just opened up its doors in Paris! The boutique is located on Rue Castiglione, right around the corner from Place Vendôme, and could possibly be the prettiest thing I've ever seen. The chocolate shop opened a few weeks before Christmas but is still relatively unknown since I walked around in the store for almost five minutes without being disturbed by any other customers. Both the shop, selection and service was impeccable. I say: visit before the masses discover this one!
Regarding the macarons from yesterday, yes they were from this place. Apart from a huge selection of chocolates they also sell a few different macarons — all with chocolate incorporated in some way of course. I would absolutely recommend the one white chocolate with passion fruit!
